They always say, “One shot. One kill.” Well, how about one weekend, one kill?
“American Sniper” is taking down all competition this holiday weekend with ease.
…That detonated the previous holiday record holder, “Ride Along,” which kicked off with $48.6 million. The largest January box office weekend belonged to “Avatar” and its $68.5 million haul from 2010. Clint Eastwood’s biopic about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle doubled projections, which pegged a weekend in the $42 million to $50 million range.
Remember “Avatar” is the world’s #1 box office movie of all-time–ahead of even “Titanic”. And “American Sniper” just dropped the blue hybrids from 2,100 yards. Let that sink in for a minute.
With every successful story, there are always angry, frivolous people wanting to throw water on others’ accomplishments and good news, only to draw attention to themselves. Well, appears that another emerging target has surfaced.
Scruff Face Assclown has company.
Meanwhile, go check out Forged Clothing – who will be providing “official” American Sniper merchandise. The apparel company already sells “The Legend” hoodies and T-shirts, supporting the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.
