Back for some fava beans and a nice gross...

 

No, it didn't come close to outgrossing 2001's Hannibal, but Brett Ratner's entry into what will probably be the last of the Hannibal flicks, that being the prequel Red Dragon, took in a solid (and record breaking) 36.5 million. I personally did enjoy the film (certainly superior to "Hannibal"), and I think people will be taking Ratner more seriously as a director now.

Also in impressive, in it's second week out, Sweet Home Alabama took in another 21.3 million, making it pass over 65 million dollars in a mere two weeks. The Tuxedo dropped a spot to third with another 10 million, while My Big Fat Greek Wedding dropped slightly with 8.2 million. But the biggest news for that smash hit is that it's now the highest grossing indie flick of all time, surpassing 1999's "The Blair Witch Project" with a total gross thus far of 147.1 million. Meanwhile, Barbershop took in 6.6 million over the weekend, making that film quite a successful with a total gross of 60 million so far.

Those Bible-loving vegetables hit the big screen this weekend, you got it, Jonah: A Veggietales Movie brought in 6.2 at the box office. Considering it's low budget, it should do nicely and make more back on the home video release. The Banger Sisters took in 3.4 million over the weekend, while The Four Feathers got blown away again with 2 million. Moonlight Mile expanded to a few more theaters this week, breaking the top ten with 1.9 while One Hour Photo fell to tenth place with 1.7 million.
