Weekend Box Office #82
So last night I'm reading a mediocre writing sample that was made into a dumb dance movie, and I put it down to take a break and watch the end of Survivor, to see who got stabbed in the back this week.
I turn on the TV, which is on whatever channel why wife had been watching last (Encore?) and what is on? The exact same dumb dance movie, which I'm then able to watch chunks of, and marvel at how much they changed from the script I'm reading for the better and for the worse.
If a coincidence like that happened in a movie, we'd boo at the screen.
IRON MAN (4105 theaters). The game this week is really guess how much money this movie will make this weekend, because there's really not much else out there. I'm going to take a wild stab and say $62.3 million. Closest gets bragging rights; deadline midnight tonight.
MADE OF HONOR (2729 theaters). Basically My Best Friend's Wedding with a sex change, and I feel like I've seen the movie from the commercials. $9.6 million.
