Weekend Box Office #159
It's November, so the movies should be getting better. Theoretically.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL (3683 theaters). Do we really need yet another version of the same old story, this one with not-particularly-thrilling looking computer animation? It's an awful lot of screens, but I don't think it's going to be huge, especially since Christmas isn't for 8 weeks yet. Figure $18.6 million.
THE BOX (2635 theaters). I read this screenplay once upon a time for someone, and I don't remember much about it, other than it was okay. $12.4 million.
THE FOURTH KIND (2529 theaters). Reviews have not been good. $6.5 million.
THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS (2443 theaters). Interesting title, good cast, decent reviews, could do a little something. $15.6 million.
Last weekend, MICHAEL JACKSON'S THIS IS IT made $23.2 million.
