Box Office: Clooney no match for Jackman's 'Steel' [Video]

October 10, 2011 | 12:47 pm

The Ides of March took second place at the box office this weekend
George Clooney may be one of the most popular stars in Hollywood, but his latest film was crushed over the weekend at the box office by the action flick "Real Steel."

"Real Steel," which stars Hugh Jackman as a man who trains a futuristic robot how to box, was the weekend's No. 1 film, raking in around $27 million worth of tickets. That was far more than "The Ides of March," which was directed by and stars Clooney alongside Ryan Gosling, grossed. The well-reviewed film collected only around $10 million, but had a miniscule budget, compared to that of "Real Steel."

As I discuss in this week's box office video report, Cooney may be one of Hollywood's most popular stars, but his films don't always do blockbuster levels of business.
