Weekend Box Office #123

Sorry this is being posted so late today, but I spent the day at jury service, despite still battling bronchitis.

JONAS BROTHERS: THE 3D CONCERT EXPERIENCE (1271 theaters). Yeah, they pulled Coraline out of most of its 3D theaters to make room for this. There are probably enough screaming girls out there to make this around $15 million for the weekend.

STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI (1136 theaters). It's hard to believe that fans of the game wouldn't simply just play the game. $4.9 million.


Last weekend, MADEA GOES TO JAIL made a stunning $41.0 million. Look for it to be #1 again, unless the expanding SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE can pull off a miracle, though probably not.

FIRED UP did only $5.4 million for the weekend.

Up here is Seattle, Washington "Two Lovers" staring Joaquin Phoenix and Gwenth Paltrow is opening. It got a good review too, though its story doesn't sound like my cup of tea.

A while back, if I remember right, Scott, you said "Slumdog Millionaire" would do $100 million. Just logged on to IMBD and that's what they're reporting. Hopefully "Slumdog's" success will get Hollywood to greenlight more films of "Slumdog's" substance in the years to come. One can always hope...
