The Rock’s “Pain & Gain” Tops The Weekend Box Office With $20 Million

According to, The Rock’s new movie “Pain & Gain” is estimated to have drawn $20 million in its opening weekend, on par with industry predictions.

The $20 million haul would put Pain & Gain at the top of the box office, ahead of “Oblivion,” which drew approximately $17.4 million in its second week “The Big Wedding” came in at #3 with $7.5 million, below expectations.

Overall weekend box office revenue and attendance was down 12% compared to the same weekend last year. Pain & Gain faces stiff competition next weekend, when “Iron Man 3” premieres.

        I find it funny everyone was shitting on the Bay movies just last week and now they are praising one

  • Adrian Avalos

    It was a great movie funy and a different type of bay film. The rock was hilarious along with Walberg.

  • Kenneth Anderson Jr.

    Rock is the most successful man to ever come out of WWE. This is a fact.

  • Steve James

    I would feel bad for the Rock, knowing that Friday, Iron Man is going to blow him out of the water, but then I remember that G.I. Joe was a hit, Fast 6 will be a hit, and when Hercules is finished, it will most likely be a hit. Plus he just had a great few months in the ring, and he’s currently putting the People’s Streudel into some pretty hot Lady Business.
    One week at #1 will be ok.
