: . . . "Rambo" slotted second with $6.7 million - the best opening day for Sylvester Stallone.
I'm questioning this statement now. Rambo has reportedly had an opening weekend in the $17 million to $18 million range, and if you look at Stallone's filmography, you can see a few films that had even bigger weekends ...
- 33.4 mil -- Spy Kids 3D: Game Over (2003) -- final cume 111.8 mil
- 20.2 mil -- Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) -- final cume 150.4 mil
- 19.9 mil -- Rocky IV (1985) -- final cume 127.9 mil
- 17.2 mil -- Antz (1998) -- final cume 90.8 mil
FWIW, while Rambo might be coming in second to Meet the Spartans this week, Rocky Balboa came in third when IT opened -- behind the debut of Night at the Museum and the second week of The Pursuit of Happyness. Then again, hmmm. Coming in third behind those films might not sting as much as coming in second behind that other film.
