Box Office Results: Witch Mountain peaks out at the top

Studio Estimates:

1.  Race to Witch Mountain – $25 million
2.  Watchmen – $18 million
3.  The Last House on the Left – $14.7 million
4.  Taken – $6.7 million
5.  Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail – $5.1 million

10. Miss March – $2.4 million

Disney and Dwayne Johnson beat out the second weekend of Watchmen taking in $25 million.  Watchmen dropped a whopping 67% from last weekend and grossed $18 million, good enough for second.  The horror remake, The Last House on the Left, had a decent opening with $14.7 million.  And the other new release, Miss March, was a total flop.  Not only did the film receive a 5% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes… it grossed $2.4 million this weekend, good enough for a #10 ranking.

Looking back at our predictions, I think it’s fair to say that I was the most accurate.  But overall we all did very well… we all predicted four of the Top 5 with me and Phil’s four being in the correct rank.

Check back Friday for our new predictions.  It’s going to be a highly competitive battle between the three new releases:  Duplicity, I Love You Man, and Knowing.
