In what is sure to be a Hollywood shocker, the box office results are in coming in for the film Tower Heist, a film that was touted as a comeback film for comedian and actor Eddie Murphy even though the film’s top billing went to Ben Stiller.
What is safe to say is that Murphy is starting to get all of the blame if the film doesn’t perform up to expectations, and that really should have most of you shaking your heads because Stiller and the other cast members are the top billed in this film, but if it is ruled as a flop, the critics are already starting to blame Murphy in the reasons on why.
Anyway, as of this writing, it looks like the film DreamWorks Animation/Paramount’s Puss In Boots is about to grab an estimated $33M. It easily beat Universal’s Tower Heist. Deadline is reporting that the film is weak overseas as well: just 3rd in the UK and 5th in Germany, for instance.
