Box Office Report Dec 24th

From moviesonline, "Dude here again, with some abbreviated weekend numbers for the holiday weekend. I'm bogged down with all my Decemberween festivities, so I'm sorry this isn't that exciting. Plus there are some films opening up tomorrow, on Xmas day. So all the numbers are going to be a little weird this week.

This weekend audiences chose Ben Stiller and an evening of history defeated all others, making twice as much as the number 2 film. Rocky also attracted a lot of people, but a lot of people ignored my buddy Matthew McConaughey and his new movie. It had heart. And possibly a robot. And sideburns. Let's go to the numbers, shall we? (All in millions, remember, and these are the studio estimates, the actuals will be available sometime later this week).

Night At The Museum (Fox) - $30.8, 3685 screens, week 1, $30.8 total

The Pursuit of Happyness (Sony) - $15.0, 2863 screens, week 2, $53.287 total

Rocky Balboa (MGM)- $12.5, 3017 screens, week 1, $22.2 total

The Good Shepherd (Uni) - $9.979, 2215 screens, week 1, $9.979 total

Charlotte's Web (Par) - $8.0, 3728 screens, week 2, $26.8 total

Eragon (Fox) - $7.15, 3030 screens, week 2, $37.6 total

We Are Marshall (WB) - $6.6, 2606 screens, week 1, $7.7 total

Happy Feet (WB) - $5.1, 2565 screens, week 6, $159.1 total

The Holiday (Sony) - $5.0, 2635 screens, week 3, $35.09 total

The Nativity Story (NL)- $4.65, 1824 screens, week 4, $31.3 total

Ok, those are the numbers, but what do they mean? Well, I don't really have time to get into it all right now. I apologize, but there's a baked brie in the oven that's about ready to explode. With a lot of people on vacation for the holidays, everything will make a fair amount of money over the holidays, and it looks like Night at the Museum stands to make the most. Charlotte's Web held fast, and will rake in money. Everything else, there aren't very exciting numbers. They'll enjoy a post holiday boost, but will ultimately disappoint.

Below the radar, Letters From Iwo Jima, Clint Eastwood's second WWII film in three months, opened on 5 screens, taking in $76,500. Also, Curse of the Golden Flower, with Chow Yun Fat, opened up on 60 screens to take in $489,000.

And in the "just because it's there and because I can" series:The Queen took in $433,000 on 302 screens, bringing it's grand total to $26,471,000 in 13 weeks. There you have my break down. A few things are opening up throughout the week, but nothing large, mostly awards consideration movies, including Pan's Labyrinth which looks awesome. Until next weekend...."

ROCK! I thought I'd totally missed Pan's Labyrinth. It's opening on Friday.


I saw Night at the Museum, which was goofy but reasonably engaging.
