Moviegoers line up to buy tickets in Burbank.
The theaters are packed this July 4th holiday weekend and many folks are buying tickets to see Will Smith as an irreverent superhero in “Hancock.” The film has received mostly negative reviews, but Smith still owns the July 4th weekend.
In its first three days , “Hancock” has raked in $60.1 million dollars at the box office. That total includes Tuesday previews, along with Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday receipts. That haul is ahead of the two “Men in Black” film openings and behind “Independence Day.” Will Smith starred in all three movies which opened over the July 4th Holiday.
“Wall-E,” “Wanted”, “Get Smart,” and “Kung Fu Panda” are also getting a lot of play from movie fans during the long holiday weekend.
