The Reign Is Over

 

The reign of the King is over. Over the long weekend, the Ben Stiller comedy Along Came Polly brought in a whopping 32 million at the box office and set records as one of the biggest January openers of all time. Coming in a pretty distant second was The Lord Of The Rings: The Return of The King with 12.4 million and literally right behind was Big Fish with 12.3 million. Cheaper By The Dozen took in another 11.8 million.

The critically lambasted Torque took in a respectable 11.4 million for fifth place, while Cold Mountain took in another 7.9 million. Something's Gotta Give made 6.7 over the weekend and cracked 100 million, while My Baby's Daddy made 4.4 million.

Rounding out the top ten were Calendar Grils with 3.8 million and The Last Samurai with 3.7 million. And even though it was the best reviewed film of the weekend, the animated Teacher's Pet couldn't crack the top ten and brought in only 3.6 million (America sucks sometimes, I know). Based on the Emmy award winning show, a DVD release of the movie is already planned for sometime in June.

With a few major releases next weekend, can any of these films hold their weight on the charts? Stay tuned, DVD fans!
