Da Vinci Code, The (2006) amazed everyone by pretty much topping all expectations. It opened with a bang at $77.1M and continues to go strong as it added 8.8M on Monday to now tops $86M. Internationally, the film has been doing amazingly well too with over $150M. Worldwide, the movie is a day away from topping $250M already, after just 5 days being out.

OverThe Hedge (2006) however was not so lucky and only made $38.5M. This is qhite a disappointment for the makers of Shrek. What the top film made over its expectations,this film made under. It's strange because the two films have different demographics. I guess parents all over the nation ditched their kids for their weekend movie and chose to go watch Da Vinci. This may mean that next weekend,which is a long weekend holiday in the US (Memorial Day), the film will do better.

Mission: Impossible 3 (2006) also disappointed, again, and added $11.3M to now top $103.5M. The movie is a disappointment but not a disaster so noonewilllose their jobs over it and we may see a 4th one later.

Finally, United 93 (2006), my favorite film of the year so far, refuses to die and stilll figures in the top 10. It added 1.4M this weekend and should break the $30M mark in a week or two.
