For the second week in a row, Marvel’s Ghost Rider took the number one spot at the box office raking in an additional $19.7 million. This is a huge drop of 56.6% from a week ago. Back in the day a drop of more than 20% was considered a box office failure (Jurassic Park 2 anyone?). However, the marketing gurus are spinning this to say the movie is doing even better than the box office indicates.
If you compare Ghost Rider’s $78.6 million (domestic) to date total, it already passed the total box office for Constantine, and some are speculating if Ghost Rider is able to continue, it could pass Daredevil. Interestingly, the world wide take for the flick is now up to $118 million.
I’m still on the fence on deciding whether to see this film or not. I haven’t been to the theatre in a long time, mainly because of other time commitments, but also because there hasn’t been that much worth seeing. Do I blow my movie money on Ghost Rider or wait for something better?
