FILM: Box Office Results - 4/25/08

Baby Mama's everywhere rejoice! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's anti-chick flick debuted at #1 with $18 mil. The Harold & Kumar sequel may have premiered at #2 with #$14 mil, but that's 3 times as much as the first movie did in 2004. Comedies dominated the box office, placing Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor's Deception at #10 with $2 mil despite a wide release. Helen Hunt's directorial and screenwriting debut Then She Found Me grossed $74,400 with a 9-theater release, and received mixed reviews. Meanwhile, Rogue didn't even register on the radar.

As for the rest of the top 10, The Forbidden Kingdom is hanging in there at #3 with $38 mil, while Forgetting Sarah Marshall sticks close by at #4 wtih $35 mil. In its fourth week, Nim's Island is at #5 with $39 mil. Prom Night is surprisingly still going strong at #6 with $38 mil. 21 is finally losing steam in its 5th week with $75 mil at #7. Al Pacino's stinker 88 Minutes is at #8, making its way out of the top 10 with $12.6 mil. Horton Hears a Who! seems like it's taking a final bow in its 7th week with $147 mil at #9. Both Street Kings and Leatherheads exited the top 10 this week. Kings left with a remarkably low $23 mil and Clooney's flick disappointed with a paltry $29 mil. It seems John Krasinski isn't meant for the big screen, which does not bode well for his future projects.

Next week, Iron Man hits theaters full force, Patrick Dempsey solidifies his romantic lead legacy in Made of Honor, Chiwetel Ejiofor reinvigorates the kickboxing genre with Redbelt, and the cutest brits on the indie circuit expand their imaginations in Son of Rambow.
