Box Office

Box Office: Feb 25, 2008


Vantage Point takes the top spot this weekend with $24 Million. This film, with an ensemble cast, benefited by coming out on a weekend that bore no highly anticipated films whatsoever. In second place was Jumper with $12 Million, down 53.8% of its audience from last weekend when it premiered in the number one spot. Jumper is going to plummet out of the top 5 very quickly but not as quickly as it deserves. In third place was The Spiderwick Chronicles with $12.6 Million, down 33.7% from last weekend. Last weekends number 2 film (because of the way it was marketed on television, clever), Step Up 2: The Streets, dropped 48.2% of its audience (even though it played in an additional 10 theaters) and took in another $9.7 Million for a two week total of $41.4 Million. Not bad for a generic movie about dancing. Rounding out this weekend’s top 5 was Fool’s Gold with $6.2 Million. Definitely, Maybe, Be Kind, Rewind (premiering this weekend for a take of $4.1 Million), Juno, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, There Will Be Blood were the remainder of this weekend’s top ten respectively. The two other major releases this weekend bombed. Witless Protection premiered in 13th place with $2.1 Million and Charlie Bartlett in 14th place for $1.8 Million. I expected Witless Protection to tank, “Get’er Done”, but Charlie Bartlett was not 14th place bad. Juno, the little Indie that could, in its twelfth week in theaters, took in another $4.1 Million for a total $130.3 Million. I have seen this film twice. It deserves every penny.
