‘Rambo: First Blood Part II’ Was The ‘American Sniper’ Of Its Day

It makes sense that Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper came out on Blu-Ray and DVD this past Tuesday, since we’re heading into the Memorial Day weekend. The Bradley Cooper war drama was an astonishingly successful and zeitgeist-capturing release. The Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. release went wide over Martin Luther King Day Jr. weekend with an eye-popping $110.6 million Fri-Mon gross, including $89.2m over the Fri-Sun portion of its holiday weekend. The film, which had earned mixed-positive reviews and a handful of major Oscar nominations (including Best Picture and Best Actor for Bradley Cooper), went on to leg its way to $349m domestic, the third-biggest R-rated release in American box office history (behind The Passion of the Christ and The Matrix Reloaded), and $546m worldwide, the sixth-biggest R-rated box office winner in worldwide history (behind those two films along with Ted, Fifty Shades of Grey, and The Hangover part II).
