Faris’ and Evans’ comedy What’s Your Number? barely managed to make the Top 10, with a weak $5.6 million estimated Friday-Sunday debut.
The movie is Evans’ second non-starter in as many weeks, after the low-profile Puncture.
Compared to What’s Your Number?, the A-list thriller Dream House, starring Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz, did a little better, or a lot worse, if you consider its reputed $50 million budget. Still, it’s too early to call flop on Dream House as its international cast figures to be a draw overseas.
Rogen’s and Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s 50/50 was the weekend’s “top” new release, meaning it opened in fourth place. It was Rogen’s smallest-opening movie ever about cancer; on the other hand, it was his first appropriately budgeted one. 50/50 cost about what it made: $8 million; his earlier Funny People was a $75 million money-loser.
