Box Office Booty: October 08, 2007

by Paul William Tenny

Neither of this past weekends three new flicks managed the top spot while The Rock is showing off not just his ability to open a weekend for the first time, but also that he can hold onto a top spot for more than a single weekend. I'm talking about The Game Plan which held steady against The Heartbreak Kid, and stood unchallenged by the meekly The Dark is Rising. Feel The Noise didn't even factor into the top 5 though was handicapped by a limited opening in just a tad over 1,000 theaters.

From what I've been able to gather, none of these films had stellar budgets, about $22m for Game Plan, and another 20 for Rising. That means Rock's flick made back its money, while none of these others will even come close. Flop, flop, and disappointment.

The Top 5
  1. The Game Plan ($16.6 million)
  2. The Heartbreak Kid ($14)
  3. The Kingdom ($9.7)
  4. Resident Evil: Extinction ($4.5)
  5. The Seeker: The Dark is Rising ($3.7)
The rest is at Box Office Mojo.
