Get On Up Takes Third Place in the Box Office Opening with 14 Million

By  |  41 Comments

Get-on-UpThe James Brown biopic starring Chadwick Boseman did fairly exceptional in the box office this weekend.  Get On Up made third place this weekend with 14 million, a number that most would consider between okay and a little disappointing. While Get On Up takes 3rd place, the movie Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson takes 2nd place with an 18 million this weekend, while Guardians of the Galaxy took the weekend by storm.  They walked away with a whopping 94 million win.

Now before you start having second guesses about whether or not the James Brown biopic is still worth buying a ticket for, let’s take in the fact that Guardians of the Galaxy was ranked the weekend favorite by 92 percent with an A Cinemascore rating along with a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  Plus the summer flick was targeted toward the demographic drenched in the younger population.  Ask yourself, how many kids these days really know who James Brown is?  I’d dare you to go ask a kid right now if they know who the king of soul is, but you’d have to gear up for a lot of disappointment.  So what does this mean for James Brown?

    The movie was outstanding, I’m planning on going out and watch again with friends. I love how the actor capture Mr James Brown, and all the actor and actresses was brilliant. At the end I it was emotional.

    Lady Di, when a “Black” biopic has a white production team, white producers, white writers and gets their content from Wikipedia, I understand why you didn’t like the film. Black people have been locked out again.

    I think more depth would have been brought to the character had Spike Lee directed it.

    James Brown was the Godfather of Soul. He sure could dance; and that band of his was “outta sight.” lol Talk about FUNK; “Good God,” as James Brown would say. lol
