Borat (2006) continues to make benefit glorious 20th Century Fox. The film is simply not letting go and packed in $28.3M this weekend. After 10 days in theaters, the movie has made a total of $67.1M which is very impressive given that most analysts had predicted $20M, maybe $25M in total at most. Fox has tripled the theater count which proved a good thing as the movie made more this weekend than it made last weekend.
Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, The (2006) also did much better than expected. Last weekend was kind of a let down, but its sophomore weekend saw a very small drop. The movie made $16.9M and now sits on $41.1M. The movie may end up not being as much of a failure as was originally thought. Flushed Away (2006) also saw a minor drop from its first weekend and added $16.6M. It now sits on $39.8M.
Stranger Than Fiction (2006) got great reviews from almost everybody, especially regarding Will Ferrell's performance, but struggled a little with $13.4M. This is in line with expectations but some had expected a little bit more.
