Grudge 2, The (2006) won the weekend, but it was quite a disappointment since it make on Friday as much as it made for the rest of the weekend. The reviews are attrovious and even the fans are crying foul for a grudgingly boring flick. It made $20.8M and will probably have trouble passing $40M in the end. On the good news, the movie only cost $20M to make, so a profit is pretty much assured by the time the movie comes to home video.
Departed, The (2006) however is showing great momentum. With $19M in its second weekend, the movie now sits at $57M. At this point, a $100M tally is pretty much guaranteed which would mark the second time director Martin Scorsese achieves this milestone. The first time was with his previous movie, Aviator, The (2004). The reviews are still spectacular and the Oscar buzz is mounting. Hopefully, it won't have died out by the time they come.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2: The Beginning, The (2006), last week's champ, collapsed this week and only managed $7.5M . The movie has so far raked in $30.2M but it will likely never reach $50M. On the good side, the movie did not cost a lot to make.
