FILM: Box Office Results - 3/28/08

Even though I was more partial to Run, Fat Boy, Run this weekend, everyone else was aiming to hit 21, putting it at the #1 spot with close to $24 mil. Fat Boy didn't place in the top 10 and with a small release of about a thousand theaters only made $2 mil, but managed $25 mil overseas. Superhero Movie opened at #3 with a very unimpressive $9.5 mil. Maybe now they'll stop sucking the life out of the spoof genre. But hopefully this isn't the beginning of the end of Drake Bell's career. The indie Stop-Loss, which most critics enjoyed, came in at #9 with $4.5 mil. And Flawless, the uber-indie with a 35-theater release starring Demi Moore, grossed $180,000 in the states and about $2 mil overseas. It seems like only the critics are interested in Moore's return.

Horton Hears a Who! finally dropped out of the top spot to #2, reaching $117 mil after only 3 weeks, while Never Back Down, with the same amount of time, exited the top 10 with $21 mil. As for the rest of the box office:
4 - Meet the Browns: $33 mil.
5 - Drillbit Taylor: 21 mil
6 - Shutter: $19 mil
7 - 10,000 B.C.: is making its way out of the top 10 with a healthy $85 mil
9 - College Road Trip is ending its journey with $38 mil.
10 -The Bank Job, as the little indie that could, made an impressive $24 mil

Out in theaters this weekend is George Clooney and John Krasinski's 1920's romantic comedy Leatherheads, Horton's main competition Abigail Breslin's Nim's Island, the horror flick The Ruins, the long-awaited indie starring Nora Jones called My Blueberry Nights, and Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones documentary Shine a Light.
