Weekend Box Office #64/65
So I missed last weekend, not that much happened, other than a lot of movies made a ton of money.
It's turning out to be a solid holiday season for the studios.
The only movie opening this weekend is the thriller ONE MISSED CALL, in 2240 theaters. Look for it to make about $8 million for the weekend, and finish in about fifth or sixth place.
Meanwhile, the big holdovers should keep chugging along well. NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS has already made about $150 million, and should bring in another 20 this weekend.
ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS is the big shocker, having made over $160 million already. I AM LEGEND is sitting at about $212 million.
JUNO is still expanding -- it almost doubles its screen count this weekend, to almost 2000 theaters -- but it has already made $35 million, and is just starting to break out.
The only big disappointmentof the December releases boxofficewise is WALK HARD, which has made only about $15 million in two weeks.
I haven't seen any of them. I'm going to have to rectify that this weekend. Promise.
