From Box Office Mojo (Last week's final rank in parenthesis):

1. Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour (NEW) - $29,000,000
2. The Eye (NEW) - $13,000,000
3. 27 Dresses (3) - $8,400,000
4. Juno (7) - $7,450,000
5. Meet the Spartans (1) - $7,125,000
6. Rambo (2) - $7,000,000
7. The Bucket List (6) - $6,850,000
8. Untraceable (5) - $5,400,000
9. Cloverfield (4) - $4,900,000
10. There Will Be Blood (9) - $4,761,000

Well...I certainly didn't expect that. I didn't even know there WAS a Hannah Montana concert film. But a whole lot of people apparently did and it rides to commanding $29M BO victory, more than doubling Jessica Alba's "The Eye". And in only 683 theaters, no less!

Not a good weekend for new films. Eva Longoria Parker's "Over Her Dead Body" sits in 11th place with $4.6M, as even Paul Rudd can't save this one. Meanwhile, "Strange Wilderness" stinks up the joint in 13th with a miserable $3.05M, proving that showing a shark with goofy teeth on a loop while laughing like a hillbilly for the entire 30 second spot DOESN'T equal money! Who knew?

Where did your money go this weekend?

I knew....I saw, took my daughter to see it and she LOVED it. Out of the 2 theaters in Raleigh that I looked up for tickets, it was sold out at one of them, so it was kind of a big deal. A theater filled with little girls in 3-D glasses, screaming in delight at a movie...my ears bled.

Also, the cost of a ticket was $18 when purchased on the day of the show, $15 in advance. That is probably part of the reason for the high total:low theater number ratio, along with the increased demand caused by the movie being only in theaters for one week.

Dammit, had a long reply written out about this. The bullet points I wanted to make - This is an excellently directed and well written film. - I'd disagree it started slow, and it made the last 20 minutes even more powerful and intense.
