The "Devil" Still Rides
In a very close
race, Daredevil remained at the top spot again with a
steep drop but still a strong showing of 18 million dollars.
Right behind it, and opening to some decent reviews, was the
frat comedy Old School (I really enjoyed it) with 17.4
million (it's the only new movie this weekend to enjoy some
real success). How To Lose A Guy In 10
still packing in audiences, as it added another 11.5 million
to its tally over the weekend.
Book 2 is
holding up strong with a nice 8.7 over the weekend.
Chicago, still riding that Oscar glory, took
in another 8.2 million. In sixth place, The Life Of David
a pretty mediocre 7.1 million (and I'm sure the terrible
reviews didn't help). Shanghai Knights continues to move down the
charts but added a decent 6.5 million to its total gross
over the weekend.
The bottom 3 mainly
belonged to two other new releases: the near four-hour, Ted
Turner-produced opus Gods and Generals with 4.6 million (it also
receieved some shoddy reviews) and the cop drama
scored some decent reviews, mainly for Kurt Russell's
performance). That took in 3.8 million. Finally,
another 3.4 million in what is likely it's last week in the
While not much new
opens next week, March should bring a new crop of movies to
challenge the staying power of some of these films. So as
always, stay tuned DVD fans...
