Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2006) repeated its win from last weekend, and with an additional $33.8M now sits at almost $116M. It's the first mega hit of the year and may reach the $200M bar.
Benchwarmers, The (2006) opened better than expected given the terrible reviews, but then again, good or bad reviews haven't really had much of an impact so far this year at all. With a $19.7M opening, the movie has a good change of reaching $50M if the word of mouth doesn't kill it.
Take The Lead (2006) did better than expected, but it also apparently opened in many more theates that was previously thought, so the end result is mixed at best. With $12.1M, the film is pretty much assured to recoup its production cost, but will not make that much mroe money.
Inside Man (2006) continued to do very well, and with $9.1M in its third weekend, is pretty much assured to break $75M soon and be Spike Lee's most successful movie. A push from the studios can still give the movie a chance to reach $100M, but it will be tough. On the other hand, Lucky Number Slevin (2006) is another opening this week and its performance was mediocre with just $7M.
