"Mall Cop" Takes First This Weekend

Posted: January 18th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Mall Cop" Takes First This WeekendSubmit Comment
The Kevin James comedy "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" debuted to an estimated $34 million from 3,144 theaters to take first place in a domestic box office that saw unexpectedly strong results across the board.

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend was up 31% over last year, and that was only for Friday through Sunday. Studios can look forward to more good business on Monday.

Holdover "Gran Torino" declined a mere 25% to an estimated $22.2 million in its second weekend in wide release for a total of $73.2 million. Pic, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, placed No. 2.

The horror/thriller "My Bloody Valentine 3-D" narrowly beat the "Notorious" biopic for No. 3. "Valentine" -- the widest 3-D release to date -- grossed an estimated $21.9 million from 1,033 3-D locations and 1,501 conventional theaters.

"Notorious," about slain rap artist Christopher Wallace, grossed an estimated $21.5 million from 1,638 theaters.

Paramount family comedy "Hotel for Dogs" grossed an estimated $17.7 million in its debut to place fifth for the three-day weekend.

On the specialty side, Golden Globe winners saw a nice bump. "Slumdog Millionaire" -- which won for best drama, best director and best screenplay -- saw a 56% rise, grossing an estimated $5.9 million from 582 theaters for a total of $42.7 million in its 10th week.

Slumdog Millionaire also has one of the best 10th weekends, so that's news.

I won a $450 bet because Mall Cop topped. Thanks, Kevin James.
