Weekend Box Office #170
I'm swamped with work, though I'm not complaining. It's better than the alternative.
This weekend, opening in wide release:
EDGE OF DARKNESS (3066 theaters). It's hard to believe that it has been 8 years (since "Signs") that Mel Gibson starred in a movie. This one is getting decent reviews, and looks like the kind of thing that people will turn out for. Prediction: $23.4 million for the weekend.
WHEN IN ROME (2456 theaters). This looks like a rather generic romcom. $7.8 million for the weekend.
Last weekend, LEGION did a solid $17.5 million. THE TOOTH FAIRY did $14.0. EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES limped in with 6.0.
AVATAR continued to roll with another $35 million weekend.
