Chris nailed the box office this weekend predicting all five films, almost in correct order. And his gross estimates were accurate as well. Kudos to Chris. It was no surprise that He’s Just Not That Into You would take the box office crown this past weekend. The surprises? Coraline taking in over $16 million. There’s a lot more stop-motion animation fans than I gave credit for. Also, Push just missed out on the Top 5, ranking #6 with a gross of $10.2 million this weekend.
Check back on Friday when we make our new predictions… it’s going to be a doozy. Will He’s Just Not That Into You stay at the top on Valentine’s Day weekend? Will Friday the 13th shine on this Friday (the 13th)? Will the romantic comedy Confessions of a Shopaholic make a dent in the Top 5? Can the team of Clive Owen and Naomi Watts thrill audiences in The International?
