Box office report: 'Act of Valor' SEALs the deal with $24.7 million; 'Tyler Perry's Good Deeds' at No. 2

act-of-valor

Patriotism ruled at the box office this weekend, as the Navy SEAL action film, Act of Valor, scored a big victory with $24.7 million.

Relativity acquired the military movie (which was independently financed by the Bandito brothers for $12 million) for just $13 million and then spent another $30 million promoting it — a large percentage of which paid for four Super Bowl spots — and their gamble has paid off in a big way. Relativity successfully captured their target audience of males 18-54 by campaigning to gamers, ethnic audiences, sports fans, country music fans, military, and the faith community. Crowds were 71 percent male, while 60 percent of audiences were above the age of 25. Act of Valor earned an “A” CinemaScore grade, meaning it may thrive at the box office for weeks to come.

Box office update: 'Act of Valor' snipes 'Good Deeds' on Friday with $9.1 million; 'Gone', 'Wanderlust' flop

ACT-OF-VALOR

Tyler Perry’s magic touch is proving to be a little less magic for his latest release Good Deeds, which was expected to top the box office this weekend. Instead, Navy SEAL action film Act of Valor is headed to an easy win over the Friday-to-Sunday period.

Act of Valor shot up a great $9.1 million on Friday, which should lead the film to a $25 million weekend and an easy number one position. The film which, audiences issued an “A” CinemaScore grade, should prove to be a big win for Relativity. Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds, meanwhile, got off to a more sluggish start. The film pulled in a weaker-than-expected $5.5 million, and may gross about $15 million by Sunday night.

The weekend’s other two new releases, Wanderlust and Gone, fared much, much worse, grossing just $2.2. million and $1.7 million, respectively. Wanderlust may wander to the $6 million mark this frame, while thriller Gone will earn a not-so-thrilling $5 million. Holdovers Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, The Vow, and Safe House, in their third weekends, will all just about double these grosses.

1. Act of Valor – $9.1 million
2. Good Deeds – $5.5 million
3. The Vow – $3.3 million
4. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island – $3.2 million
5. Safe House – $3.1 million

Box office preview: 'Tyler Perry's Good Deeds' and 'Act of Valor' head into battle

Thanks to the arrival of four new movies — Act of Valor, Gone, Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds, and Wanderlust — and some strong holdovers, the box office should maintain a healthy amount of depth this weekend, with many of grosses in the $10-20 million range. Still, we’re probably not looking at another frame like two weeks ago, when The Vow and Safe House both shattered industry expectations.
