Box Office Results: Mall Cop on Top

Studio Estimates for Jan. 16-19:

1.  Paul Blart: Mall Cop – $39 million
2.  Gran Torino – $26.2 million
3.  My Bloody Valentine: 3-D – $24.2 million
4.  Notorious – $24 million
5.  Hotel for Dogs – $22.5 million

Well this MLK weekend sure was a good one for the box office, a lot better than I expected.  Good work from our new predictor, Chris, who nailed the box office winner in Paul Blart: Mall Cop.  I was the only one to predict all Top 5 films although my gross predictions were quite off.

What’s in store for next week?  Well we have two new wide releases for you fantasy lovers:  Inkheart and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.  Also, The Dark Knight is re-released, and a number of Oscar-contenders are expanding to more theaters.

Check out our predictions on Friday.
