FALLING STARS REYNOLDS AND CARREY: #1 'Green Lantern' Opens To Just $53M; 'Popper's Penguins' Falls To #3 With $18M

SATURDAY PM/SUNDAY AM, 4TH UPDATE: Warner Bros' Green Lantern ($21.6M Friday, dropping -21% for $17.1M Saturday, and only a $53M weekend) underperforms, unable to meet even the studio's lowered expectation for North America. And Fox's Mr. Popper's Penguins ($6.4M Friday, up only +2% for $6.5M Saturday meaning it failed to get any significant kiddie matinee bump, and only an $18M weekend) falls to No. 3 behind Paramount's holdover Super 8 which cast no stars moves up to No. 2.
An absolutely awful Saturday for GL. Looks like there will probably be no sequel.

At least we will always have GL: First Flight.
What do you attribute that drop-off to? Word of Mouth or that the bulk of people who are actually interested in seeing this already have?
