Dwayne Johnson scores another number one movie

Apr 29, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

Dwayne Johnson can add another number one movie to his list as Pain &
Gain with Mark Wahlberg opened at an estimated $20,000,000 this weekend to
grab the number one spot in the box office chart according to
BoxOfficeMojo.com. The movie opened with $7.5 million on Friday, $7.37
million on Saturday, and then $5.13 million today from 3,227 screens
nationwide. Pain & Gain – from director Michael Bay – had a $26 million
budget, a very, very, small budget for a usual Bay movie. It is expected
to recuperate the production budget by the end of next week. Pain & Gain
will not open worldwide till August and overseas is where movies make the
most money. This was The Rock’s third movie this year so far with Snitch
and G.I. Joe: Retaliation being the other two. His fourth movie – Fast &
Furious 6 – opens on May 24.
