Elsewhere in the charts The Three Musketeers in 3D failed to break double figures, opening on just short of $9 million the swashbuckling adventures has decent reviews and seems enjoyable other than Orlando Bloom and the 3D. It’s curious that a family friendly adventure has not done better in a less than packed release week. The only other new entry in the top ten was Johnny English Reborn which managed $3.8 million.
Tintin gets released in Europe almost 2 months before the US, so all eyes will be on the Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson collaboration which is out this week in the UK. It remains to be seen if it will be a blockbuster but it certainly has all the credentials to be one, I will be braving 3D to see Tintin next week, I’m not happy about it but will give it a go as I trust Jackson and Spielberg as they have been vocal in their feelings about 3D.
