Dude here again. Mostly based on a dare (and an ever growing need to get the hell out of L.A. for a bit), I drove from L.A. on Friday night to catch a play in Seattle on Saturday night. Then after the play was done, I hopped back in the car and made my way back down to L.A. in time for work on Monday. I'm a little loopy, and I'm kind of amazed I'm still alive, but I'm gonna have to give a truncated Box Office Report for this week.
This weekend, Superbad kicked ass and The Invasion faltered miserably. Way to go, McLovin! Let's go to the numbers, shall we? (All in millions, remember, and these are the studio estimates, the actuals will be available on Monday. Just to prove me wrong).
1. Superbad (Sony) - $31.2, 2948 screens, week 1, $31.2 total
2. Rush Hour 3 (NL) - $21.8, 3778 screens, week 2, $88.1 total
3. The Bourne Ultimatum (Uni) - $18.9, 3701 screens, week 3, $163.8 total
4. The Simpsons Movie (Fox) - $6.6, 3162 screens, week 4, $165.1 total
5.The Invasion (WB) - $6.0, 2776 screens, week 1, $6.0 total
6. Stardust (Par) - $5.2, 2565 screens, week 2, $19.0 total
7. Hairspray (NL) - $4.2, 2389 screens, week 5, $100.5 total
8. Underdog (BV)- $3.6, 2551 screens, week 3, $31.6 total
9. Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix (WB) - $3.5, 1955 screens, week 6, $278.6 total
10. I Now... Chuck and Larry (Uni) - $3.5, 2258 screens, week 5, $110.3 total
And in the "Because It's There" series (And to keep things Rogen-centric at all times): Knocked Up took in $290,000 on 297 screens, bringing it's grand total to $147,299,000 in 12 weeks.
There you have my break down. Next week, I hopefully catch up on some much needed rest. And on oil change for my car.
Until next weekend....
