Given this weekend's reception at the box office, they may wait another 10 years for the next one.Blended has managed to take in just $14 million over the first three days of the Memorial Day weekend, and will likely top out at $18 million for the four days. It's not a financial disaster for distributor Warner Bros. or Sandler's Happy Madison Productions, sinceBlended cost roughly $45 million to produce.
"Nevermind ‘Blended,’ how about that f——-g ‘Godzilla’?!" Adam Sandler opened when he hit the stage at the CinemaCon theater owners gathering in Las Vegas on Thursday to present his new comedy with Drew Barrymore. "It made Drew cry." A very pregnant Barrymore appeared by Sandler’s side, looking a little shocked. "I’m, like, creating life and I started crying so hard at the destruction in that [‘Godzilla’] trailer," she said while touching her belly.
