In its opening weekend, Wanted grossed $50.9 million in 3,175 theaters in the United States and Canada, ranking #2 at the box office and averaged an estimated $16,100 per theater, the $50.9 million opening exceeded the analysts projections of $30-$35 million opening weekend! Wanted grossed more in its opening weekend than any previous live-action film starring Angelina Jolie. It has grossed a total of $83,177,985 worldwide so far.
So with all of that said and done I loved it! I was on the edge of my seat eating popcorn and raisinets (if you have not tried it, it is the BEST) wondering what was going to happen next. It was a good mix of characters and action, it was like The Matrix meets The Transporter meets Mission Impossible meets. . .
It's a must see and maybe more than once! :-)
