Weekend Box Office

Looka the numbers!

Extravagant 3D money vortex Disney's A Christmas Carol pulls in $30 million and comes in at #1. What a novel idea, to make a movie out of this story! One day maybe they'll make another, so we can compare 'em.

Weirdo George Clooney vehicle The Men Who Stare At Goats comes in 3rd at $12 mil. I want to see this. A couple of horror movies, The Fourth Kind and The Box also make the top then, but they won't be there long.

Paranormal Activity finally starts dropping, but it's made almost a hundred million bucks! Not bad for a movie that cost $1.98 to make.

My favorite title for the week, at #12: Precious: Based on the Novel "Push". Why not just call it Push? Clearly, someone in the Lionsgate executive offices has a mighty big ego problem.

  1. A correction about Precious per Wikipedia:

    The film's title was changed multiple times; notably from Precious to, it's current titling, Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire to avoid confusion with the 2009 action film Push.

    What's more, it turns out this is the festival winner that Mariah Carey is said to have acted well it, which makes it quite an acheivement indeed.
