"Dare" To Be First

 

No major surprises here as the latest comic book movie to hit the big screen, Daredevil, claimed the top spot for the long President's Day weekend. Even though the film receieved mixed reviews, that didn't stop fans of the comic or the curious from seeing it, as it raked in an impressive 45 million dollars.

In second was the hit, enjoyable romantic comedy How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days which continues to pull in strong numbers, this weekend taking in 20.7 million for the long weekend. And obviously captializing off all its Oscar® nods, Chicago brought in a healthy 14.5 million. And - surprise, surprise - the once direct-to-video The Jungle Book 2 brought in a really strong 14.1 million (maybe since there are a lack of true kiddie films out there?).

Shanghai Knights also continues to do well, settling for fifth place with a cool 12.7 million (it's likely to surpass the gross of the first film). The Recruit is also starting to slip, taking in 7.2 million. Final Destination 2 took home a nice 6.2 million, while Kangaroo Jack took in a decent 5 million as it's about to hop over the 60 million dollar mark. Finally, the romantic comedy Deliver Us From Eva and Oscar® contender The Hours took in 4.4 and 3.8 million, respectively.

There's a slew of new releases next weekend, so stay tuned to see how all of these films hold up...
