September 26th, 2010 · Wall Street 2

Gordon Gekko proved to still be a commodity after all of these years, but the weekend closing bell rang on a bearish note for upstarts Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and You Again. Overall business was up three percent over the same weekend last year, when Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was on top.

After greedily acquiring approximately 5,100 screens at 3,565 locations, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps accrued an estimated $19 million, which was above par for an adult-oriented drama but relatively modest for the scope of its release. On-the-money comparables are hard to come by, but the Wall Street sequel’s first weekend gross was close to Burn After Reading and nearly twice as much as The Informant! and Michael Clayton.

The first Wall Street debuted nearly 23 years ago and earned $4.1 million its first weekend, or the equivalent of double that adjusted for ticket-price inflation, but it played at a fifth of the theaters that Money Never Sleeps had. Its $43.8 million final tally would equal close to $87 million today, a sum that the sequel is unlikely to reach based on its first weekend returns.
