Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, The (2005) retook first place this weekend, beating out #2 King Kong (2005) by less than $1M. Narnia crossed the $200M mark and now sits at $218M. Kong added $25M and sits at $168.5M. After a terrible start, the movie has fared better, and Kong won't be the financial disaster some had feared: some execs must be breathing again as profitability will be reached, albeint not during its US theatrical release.

Fun With Dick And Jane (2005) did a little bit better than expected and with an additional $16.5M now sits at about $60M. This is not what people wanted, given the film's $85M budget. Cheaper By The Dozen 2 (2005) hoever was much cheaper to make, and is on its way to making a profit. With $14.5M, the movie just crossed the $50M bar.

The two Oscar hopefulls continue to disappoint. Memoirs Of A Geisha (2005) barely aded $8M this week and is now sitting just under $30M. Munich (2005) is faring even worse. With less than $5M this weekend, the movie is still under the $15M bar.

Finally, the third blockbuster of the 2005 holliday season packed an additional $5.7M. Harry Potter 4, The Goblet Of Fire (2005) is now officialy the second highest performing film of the series. It still has a little bit of way to go and may reach the $300M milestone, but it won't pass the original movie that still sits supreme at $317.6M.
