Didn’t watch the first one, probably won’t watch this one. Other than that this looks totally fine, right? I mean, Paul Sheer’s in it so it’s got that going for it.
Having awoken from their spring break extravaganza at Lake Victoria, the swarm heads upstream where they look to make a meal out of Big Wet, a local water park where when it comes to fun, nobody does it wetter! Thought they came to get wet, get loaded and get some, the staff and patrons get more than they bargained for when they must face the fiercest, most bloodthirsty piranhas yet. Lead by the strong-willed, studious Maddy and her friends, Barry and Kyle, the trio must dive in and take on these man-eating creatures using every ounce of their being…but can they be stopped?
This weekends box office was dominated by Fast Five, the fifth film in the Fast and the Furious franchise. It was by far the largest opening of the year and the third largest non summer/holiday box office opening of all time behind Alice in Wonderland (2010)’s $116.1 million and The Passion of the Christ’s $83.8 million dollar opening. It was also the largest opening in the franchise’s history surpassing Fast and Furious who opened with $71 million dollars.
Following up in second with $14 million was Rio who surpassed the $100 million dollar mark in it’s third weekend. Rio continues to perform strongly in it’s demo and will probably continue to until the next big animated feature hits.
Despite the strong opening by Fast Five there were several disappointments in this weekends box office including Prom, who opened with a weak $5 million dollars, Hoodwinked Too!, which could barely muster $4.1 million dollars, but by far the biggest loser this weekend was Dylan Dog. The graphic novel turned feature film didn’t even hit the $1 million dollar mark and does not bode well for Brandon Routh’s future as a leading man. Look for this one to disappear quickly…
