It is a good start for Sony’s 3D superhero action flick.


Sony's The Green Hornet earned an estimated $550,000 in midnight grosses from approximately 700 theaters, a good start for the superhero pic.

January isn’t a time that usually sees big midnight grosses, so Sony was pleased that Green Hornet did comparable business to summer titles Salt, Grown Ups and The Other Guys.

Today, Green Hornet expands into a total of 3,584 theaters domestically, including more than 2,700 3D runs. Pic also plays in 174 Imax runs. Overseas, it begins rolling out in a number of key territories.
Directed by Michel Gondry, Green Hornet toplines Seth Rogen and Jay Chou. Cameron Diaz and Christoph Waltz also star.
Green Hornet has been tracking great with younger males in particular.
