"Bee Movie" Takes First Place

Posted: November 11th, 2007 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Bee Movie" Takes First PlaceSubmit Comment
"Bee Movie" showed surprising results in its second weekend, climbing its way to the top of the domestic box office and beating out last week's winner "American Gangster," along with every new release.

"Bee," voiced by Jerry Seinfeld, declined just 32% to an estimated $26 million from 3,944 playdates for a total of $72.2 million. That's quite a honied victory, considering "Bee" opened at No. 2 the previous weekend behind the opening of "Gangster." It's not often that a movie moves up to the top of the chart in its second weekend.

In its second week, "Gangster" came in No. 2, declining 44% to an estimated $24.3 million from 3,059 theaters for a new total of $80.7 million.

Starring Vince Vaughn, "Fred Claus" opened to an estimated $19.2 million from 3,603 theaters, putting it at No. 3. Holiday family title is the first PG rated film that Vaughn has starred in. Warners said Christmas movies are a marathon, not a sprint, and that it expects "Claus" to play solidly through the holidays. Still, inside the studio, execs had looked for "Claus" to hit the $20 million mark.

First Tom Cruise movie under the UA label, "Lions for Lambs," struggled to find an audience, grossing an estimated $6.7 million from 2,215 theaters. Directed by Robert Redford, "Lions" came in 4th and is the latest in a string of movies dealing with U.S. policy abroad and the war on terror that haven't been able to rally substantial box office grosses.

On the specialty side, the Coen brothers' "No Country for Old Men" made a strong debut. Film opened to an estimated $1.2 million from 28 theaters in key markets for a hefty per screen average of $42,912.

$1.2 million in only 28 theaters? Damn, makes you wonder how well No Country for Old Men would have done with a wide release...
