The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opened at No. 1 at the U.S. box office on Wednesday with a $3 million (exact $3,006,254) gross, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No official announcement from Sony Pictures yet on Wednesday’s gross. The final number is coming later today.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, the latest supernatural film property based on a bestselling YA book series, debuted at No. 1 Wednesday with a tepid $3 million.
Starring Lily Collins as a girl who discovers she’s part of a secret order of half-angel warriors, the supernatural pic is on course for a five-day debut in the $15 million range. It earned a B+ CinemaScore.
But we can do much better than that, U.S. fans.
This is where I continue to stress the importance of opening week/end to everyone — U.S. and international fans. It’s very important that you see The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opening week/end — Wednesday through Sunday. We need this film to do well in the box office the first week to ensure future movies. You want to see more Mortal Instrumentsmovies, as well as Infernal Devices movies, right? Then go see The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones multiple times this week and bring your friends and family with you and keep spreading the word. It’s time to show the mundane world that the Shadowhunters are indeed a force to be reckoned with. As Jace says, “Have a little faith!” We have faith in you!
No word yet on the international numbers for Wednesday.
