No video this week. My computer is suffering from some iTunes related illness and it crashes if I try anything fancy.
3 new movies on the chart this week, here in the dead center of January. At #1 it's Contraband, Mark Wahlberg's annual action thriller. It made $25 mil. 2nd place goes to the 3D re-release of Beauty and The Beast, which pulled down 18 million. Not bad for a 20 year old title that has already paid for itself! In 4th place, Dolly Parton/Queen Latifah romantic comedy Joyful Noise, which brought in $12 million.
As I predicted, last week's #1 title The Devil Inside plummeted like a stone, dropping 76% from its opening week. Get thee behind me!
