The critic-proof “Sex and the City 2″ grosses $14.2 million on its first day in theaters

http://image3.examiner.com/images/blog/replicate/EXID15166/images/satc2(1).jpgI’ve been reading more scathing reviews of Sex and the City 2. Ouch! Just withering words for the flick. But fans don’t seem to care: the film earned $14.2 million on opening Thursday and should rake up some BIG numbers by the end of the Memorial Day weekend.

The day one figure is the sixth highest Thursday opening ever, edging out the $13.4 million grossed on the same day a year ago by Terminator Salvation.

Two years ago, the first Sex and the City feature film grossed $26.8 million on its first day but that was a Friday and it was showing on more screens so it’s tough to make real comparisons. It went on to gross $57 million in its first four days.

If the numbers for the second film hold up, we certainly can expect a third film in the franchise which originated as an HBO series that lasted for six seasons and remains popular in syndication.

2004′s Sex and the City film was a blockbuster grossing $152.6 million domestically and another $262.6 million in foreign markets for a worldwide total of $415.2 million.

In Hollywood, money speaks a lot louder than reviews!
