Inside Man (2006) beat all expectations and is well into becoming director Spike Lee's highest grossing film ever, and could also achieve that for actor Denzel Washington if it can beat Remember The Titans' $115M. But for now, with a superb opening of $29M and top reviews, the film is starting fast.

V For Vendetta (2005) failed to move crowds to the theater and only managed $12.3M in its sophomore stint. Maybe the heavy handed political message had a part in this? The movie should have no problem meeting its initial $50M production budget sometimes soon though so the film won't be a financial failure, just not a success some had expected.

Stay Alive (2006), yet another teen horror film ripped from similar Asian fares, did less than expected but by a small margin. With a $10.7M opening though, the movie will make a profit given its low production budget.

In the hold-over section, three films continue to show great legs in spite of overwhelmingly terrible reviews. Failure To Launch (2006) added $10.5M and now sits at $63M. Shaggy Dog, The (2006) added $9M and has now pocketed $47.8M. Eight Below (2006) is close to ending its run, but with an additional $2.7M, the film is now at $77.1M. The film is really a couple of weeks away from crossing the $80M milestone. And talking about that milestone, Pink Panther, The (2006) crossed it and remains to this date the highest grossing film of 2006.
