’42′ Hits Home Run At Box Office


Looks like the Jackie Robinson biopic, “42″, stunned everyone when it came in number one at the box office this weekend, making $9.1 million. It has grossed more in opening weekend than more recent baseball films such as “Moneyball” and “Trouble with Curve”, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The film is expected to make $27 million over the next three days which is incredible since the film cost $40 million to make. It seems sure to be a word-of-mouth hit.
