Box Office -‘The Best Man Holiday’ Neck and Neck With ‘Thor’

best-man-2-2-1-640x420

The Best Man Holiday is doing beaucoup bucks at the box-office.  The $17 millionbudget film could double its negative cost on opening weekend.  The film is tracking to finish in the mid-$30 million range. That will put it neck and neck with Thor: The Dark World, which is expected to finish near $35 million. That would be a huge upset!  Although I love seeing my comic book heroes on the big screen, I hope Hollywood wakes up to the fact that there are other films that undeserved audiences would love to see.
