2007.02.06 - BoxOffice News
    

This weekend was Superbowl in the US, and that generally means that most Americans stay home on Sunday, and that means they don't go the movies. The total box office as a result suffered, pretty much as expected. What wasn't expected though was for Messengers, The (2007) to win the weekend with $14.7M. The odds were in favor of the movie that ended up in second place, Because I Said So (2007). With very mediocre reviews, and such a slow start, the movie is not expected to do much more than its opening $13.1M.

Epic Movie (2007) pretty much as expected fell apart in its second weekend and added just $8.4M. The movie now sits on $29.6M and that's actually a success given its low budget. Night At The Museum (2006) continues to do so well and added another $6.4M. The movie broke the $225M milestone. Dreamgirls (2006) is also doing rather OK and with an additional $4M, it now has $92.7M in the coffers. This means that with the Oscars season around the corner, the film is pretty sure to break the $100M milestone. Finally, Pan'S Labyrinth (2006) added another $3.7M and passed the $20M mark. This may not seem like a lot, but for a foreign language film, it's quite a success.
