A Look At Box Office Figures For The "alien" Franchise; Where Will "prometheus" Fall?

Prometheus

In anticipation of this week’s opening of Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus,” which is set in the Alien universe and is a sort of a prequel, I went to BoxOfficeMojo.com to compile box office figures for the entire Alien franchise, excluding the two AVPs (“Alien vs. Predator”).
I’m not counting the extra amount from the re-release of “Alien” either, which added just a couple mil to its total.

    The weekend was very kind to last week’s one and only new release, Oblivion. Otherwise, the charts have remained more or less static since last weekend. Oblivion did quite well in the box office, making over $38.1 million; while this is at the bottom end of its predicted range for its opening weekend gross, it’s still a respectable sum, and the film can probably expect similarly impressive numbers in later weeks.

    As promising and, surprisingly, somewhat original as the film sounds, critics remain unimpressed (aren’t they always?)—Rotten Tomatoes currently rates it at 59%. While the film is visually stunning, and Cruise offers a respectable performance, some insist that there’s not quite enough substance to the script to tie the whole package together. More

    Disney has been pretty slow to release official information about its slate of upcoming Star Wars sequels, but nobody gets out of CinemaCon without making a few big announcements, and this one's sort of a doozy, albeit in classically circumspect Mouse House fashion: Episode VII is indeed coming to theaters in 2015, with a new Star Wars-related film to follow every summer.
