2005.12.13 - BoxOffice News

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe (2005) blew all expectations away last weekend and pocketed $65.5M. That was huge and the movie should continue to do very well, even with the monkey movie (as my 2 and a half year old calls it) coming out tomorrow as the target audiences are quite different. The reviews however are just good, when the studios had expected fantastic ones.

Syriana (2005) had a big expansion this weekend and made $11.7M. Directed by Stephen Gaghan who also wrote Traffic (2000). The reviews all say that the movie is very much in the same vein, and really challenging for its audiences in good way. It' also, of course, an Oscar hopefull.

Harry Potter 4, The Goblet Of Fire (2005) added $10.3M to its coffers, and now sits at $244.1M. It's about $20M from passing by the last two Potter films, which it should be able to do over the next few weeks.
