by | July 23, 2005 | Comments

Michael Bay haters (I’m not one of them) can cherish this weekend. His newest explosion-fest, The Island, bombed at the box office with an estimated $4.4M on Friday, according to Showbizdata. It took the third spot behind last Friday’s chart toppers, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Wedding Crashers. For the weekend, The Island will likely gross $12-14M, making it the worst debut for a Michael Bay film. His average opening for his last five films is an explosive $36M. His last five films also have a spectacular average gross of $147M; The Island, which has a production budget of $120M, will be lucky to make a third of that.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory again took the top spot this Friday with an estimated $9M, a 57% dropoff from the previous Friday. It will likely finish the weekend with $27-29M. Wedding Crashers held up very well with an estimated $7.7M, a 27% dropoff. For the weekend, it will gross between $23-25M.

The other wide debuts this weekend – Bad News Bears, Devil’s Rejects, and Hustle & Flow – did $4.2M, $3.1M, and $2.7M respectively. Bad News Bears will likely finish the weekend with $13-15M, Devil’s Rejects with $12-13M, and Hustle & Flow with $8-9M.
