In its second
release of release, the family comedy Elf made the
rare jump from second to first by grossing 26.3
million - making more this weekend than it did last
weekend. Coming in a close second was the sea drama
Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World with
a very impressive 25.1 million. The film has received a lot
of strong reviews and awards buzz, so expect this high seas
adventure to stay afloat in the weeks to come.
The news was very
disappointing for The Matrix Revolutions, dropping to
third with 16.4 million. Taking a sixty-six percent (!) dip,
looks like Neo is facing something worse than Agent Smith:
bad word of mouth. Holding steady in fourth was Disney's 2-D
animated Brother Bear with 12 million and in a meager
fifth the hyped Looney Tunes: Back In Action with 9.3
expanded theaters and brought in 8.6 million more while
Scary Movie 3 passed the 100 million mark with 6.1
million this weekend. In eighth place was Radio with
4.8 million and with 4.6 was the documentary Tupac:
Resureection. Rounding out the top ten was Mystic
River with 3.2 million.
Can a certain Dr.
Seuss favorite topple the box office next weekend? As
always, stay tuned DVD fans!
