Taken from yahoo.com

For the first time since Christmas weekend 2008 -- and for the first non-holiday weekend ever -- four movies debuted to more than $20 million. "The Vow" more than doubled that sum, taking an estimated $41.7 million. "Safe House" nearly doubled it, with $39.3 million.

"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" beat all expectations with $27.6 million and Fox's 3D re-release of "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace" grossed a solid $23 million.

While it is too early in the year to say that the slump that plagued the box office in 2011 is over, Hollywood has reason to celebrate today.

"The weekend itself is a record-breaker," Nikki Rocco, Universal's distribution chief, told TheWrap Sunday morning.

In addition to this being the first non-holiday weekend to have four movies debut to more than $20 million, she said this is the biggest non-holiday February weekend ever.




Proud i helped make this record setting achievement, but also mildly amused that out of all those brand new flicks something that people own on VHS, DVD, and BluRay was still able to achieve such a high number in 3 days.

Its entertainment? I thought All 1-6 movies were great.

I have still yet to understand what the hate is about reguarding the first three films?

To call it entertainment is an affront to the word.

Remember when it first came out and it was #1? When people thought it would be good?

I got through around 2-3 minutes of each.

One of the things I did hear him say is that "maybe the second movie will be better because it wont have a little kid like the phantom menace did" ***????

Umm yeah, if thats one of the reasons why the first movie was considered bad, then I really feel sorry for people. I still like the goonies, just as I liked the first one.

Again, give me an actual REASON why they all were horrible. I think they did great with the backstory and explained how cader became to be.

Maybe you should actually try watching it then. I mean, I just watched 2-3 minutes of the superbowl, and figured if they're just going to hike the ball and throw it once without scoring.
