Hercules opening weekend

Hercules opened at number two last weekend, grossing $29,8 million domestically in the US (beaten by Scarlett Johansson's Lucy proving that female driven films can sell enormous amounts of tickets. Yes, Studio Executives, the female audience is huge out there, and guys also wants to watch stories about women. Yei!).

 

Hercules is grossing big overseas, opening number 1 in Russia, Australia and in 10 other territories, resulting in a global opening weekend gross of $56 million.

 

The film has been well received, has a glowing fresh tomato over at Rotten Tomatoes, scoring 62 % both with critics and the audience.

 

Well done!
