"Beowulf" Slaughters Weekend Competition

Posted: November 18th, 2007 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Beowulf" Slaughters Weekend CompetitionSubmit Comment
Paramount's epic "Beowulf" won the domestic box office weekend crown with an estimated $28 million from 3,153 theaters. Film marks the widest rollout yet of a digital 3-D film, with 40% of its total coming from only 730 3-D screens. At the same time, "Beowulf" wasn't enough to prevent the Thanksgiving eve weekend from being down as much as 30% from last year, when "Happy Feet" and "Casino Royale" led in their debuts with $41.5 million and $40.8 million, respectively.

Weekend's other two wide entrants were the G-rated family entry "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" and New Line's "Love in the Time of Cholera." "Magorium," toplining Natalie Portman and Dustin Hoffman, grossed an estimated $10 million from 3,164 locations, landing it at No. 5. "Cholera" couldn't find much of an audience at the box office, grossing $1.9 million from 852 theaters and putting it at No. 10.

Among limited entries, Nicole Kidman's starrer "Margot at the Wedding," enjoyed the highest per screen average of the weekend. Film grossed an estimated $82,929 from two theaters in New York for a per location average of $41,464.

Expanding strongly in its second week was the Coen brothers' "No Country for Old Men." Film grossed an estimated $3 million as it expanded from 28 to 148 theaters for a robust per location average of $20,932 and a new total of $4.8 million. It placed No. 7 overall.

Holdovers dominated, with "Bee Movie" taking the No. 2 spot. Toon continued its great performance, declining 44% to an estimated $14.3 million from 3,984 theaters for a new total of $93.9 million. "American Gangster" has now crossed the $100 million mark in its third week. The film placed third with $13.2 million and a new total of $100.9 million.
