What I thought would happen, happened. Big movies always fell by 50% the next weekend with a top position of 1 or 2. The true "fans" went to see it while others stayed on the sidelines or went to see the other movies.
That being said, I doubt a Cloverfield 2 will be made if the estimated numbers are still good. If they do one, it will be a direct to video. They did make a profit after all. But people getting sick did not help unless they change the style of filming by shooting a regular action movie. Then it may have a shot at theater again. Cloverfield will still make big money when it's release on DVD.

For me, I did not see any new movies this weekend. Why? None were in English and 27 Dresses is a chick flick. ;) I won't pay to see that one at the theater.
