Green Lantern earned $18.4 million in its second weekend, according to current studio estimates reported by Box Office Mojo. That’s a 65.5 percent drop from its first weekend, a steeper decline than Thor (47.2 percent) and X-Men: First Class (56.2 percent).
Facing two strong openings — Cars 2 and Bad Teacher — the Ryan Reynolds-starred DC Comics adaptation placed in third, with a cumulative domestic total of $89.3m. Combined with a current $29.4 in foreign gross, the film’s sitting at $118.7 worldwide. The stiff competition isn’t letting up in the coming days, with Transformers: Dark of the Moon debuting in theaters on Tuesday night.
The film’s disappointing performance apparently isn’t stopping Warner Bros. from planning on a sequel, though: The Hollywood Reporter says in an article today that the studio “still believes in the franchise.”
