Heavenly Weekend Box Office for Hellboy II

Hellboy knocked off Hancock at the top spot over the weekend making $36 Million at the B.O.

Misplaced worries about Hellboy being overlooked due to the plethora of comic book movies coming out, not to mention all the viral hype coming from Batman: The Dark Knight, are all allayed with a satisfying box office take--55% more than the original Hellboy movie took.

This from Box Office mojo...

Another strong marketing campaign from Universal paid off as the second movie based on Mike Mignola's comic character topped the box office with an opening weekend of just under $36 million, a 55% increase above the opening of the original Hellboy in April 2004, as well as surpassing the opening of del Toro's previous dark comic book sequel Blade II two years prior. The movie averaged $11,200 in 3,204 theaters, and it will be vying to make $100 million over the summer despite heavy competition in the next few weeks.

Hancock (Sony) held up well after its 4th of July opening, grossing $33 million in its second weekend for a strong second place. It dropped just 47% from last weekend, bringing its total gross to $165 million and making it the fourth-highest grossing movie of the year after just 13 days.

In another show of the Academy's prejudice against comic book movies, Hellboy II: The Golden Army loses the "Best Make-Up" Oscar to Brad Pitt's tale of a baby born old who ages backwards -- which in no way compares to the monstrous make-up accomplishments of the Hellboy movies...
