I know that everyone says that the SPN boys are not in any type of competition when it comes to their movies, but the fandom is another story.  So in an attempt to quiet down some of the "his movie did better at the box office" words that have been thrown around the fandom (not many, but some), I took it upon myself to go over what there is of the actual box office numbers for each movie (only through the second weekend).  And what I saw was quite surprising.

Although F13 did better opening weekend than MBV (almost twice the $), shockingly MBV pulled in better numbers than F13 during their respective second weekend out.  F13 dropped a whopping 80.4% during its second weekend, only pulling in $7.9 mil, while MBV only dropped 52.9% during its second weekend, pulling in another $10 mil.

Having said that, F13 has still made more money than MBV in just its first two weeks running, but it looks like MBV did (or will do) better in theaters overall as far as less of a drop in percentage per week.  I just felt like I needed to put this out there for people to see that BOTH of the boys' movies did quite well in theaters.  Neither one of the movies outshined the other.  And I am equally happy for both Jared and Jensen.  :o) 
Dear Mr. Padalecki,

If for some reason both remakes of Friday the 13th and My Bloody Valentine (3D!) are released on the same weekend (Feb. 13th/14th '09), I will be shelling out my hard earned cash for the lesser known classic slasher flick.  And it has nothing to do with which movie is gonna be better or scarier or, haha, slashier.  No sir, I will be warming the movie theater seat inside the doors under the header My Bloody Valentine 3D because of something much more important than silly stuff such as scariness and popularity.  I will not miss my chance to see your best buddy and SPN costar, Mr. Ackles, strut his cute little ass on the big screen.  But please, do enjoy youself as you run screaming from Jason.  I will not be thinking of you.
