The Hitchhiker’s movie has a decend second week but has lost the first rank in UK and US. In US H2G2 is third behind “Kingdom of Heaven” and “House of wax”. Anyway it seems that after less than two weeks after its opening, H2G2 already earned 37 millions dollars in US plus 17,9 millions overseas (UK, Australia and New Zealand). It has already covered its budget estimated between 45 & 55 millions dollars. It’s good news because H2G2 is not a typical US movie and noone could say if was going to be a success or not. And don’t forget that the US box office is quite weak right now (in fact “Kindgdom of heaven” which costed three times more than Hitchhikers had a less good opening week end).
Chris Harding, one of the great guys from Shynola who made the wonderful Guide entries for the Hitchhiker’s movie have been interviewed by Iain Failes from Vfxblog+. You can read the interview here.
