Are We There Yet Topples Coach Carter for Top Spot

by | January 24, 2005 | Comments

This weekend, one of the worst reviewed films of the year took the #1 spot at the box office. With a very moldy 10% on the Tomatometer, the Ice Cube and Nia Long starring Are We There Yet grossed an estimated $18.5M. Ice Cube continues to be a reliable performer at the box office, with a majority of his films opening in the $15-20M range. Are We There Yet’s debut ranks as his third best behind the two Barbershop films, which opened with $24M and $21M respectively.

This is the second consecutive weekend where films targeted at the African-American demographic took the top spot. Unfortunately, last weekend’s top opener, Coach Carter took a major hit because of the shared audience. Coach Carter grossed an estimated $11M, a 55% drop-off from last weekend. It’s total now stands at $43.2M after two weeks of release.

In third is Meet The Fockers with an estimated $10.2M for a total of $247.7M. It currently ranks as the sixth highest grossing film of last year. It looks very likely that it’ll eventually beat The Incredibles’s $257.3M for fourth, but unlikely that it’ll reach The Passion of the Christ’s $370M.

In fourth is In Good Company with an estimated $8.5M for a total of $28M.

Racing Stripes finished fifth with an estimated $7M for a total of $27.3M.

The other wide release debut last week is the remake Assault on Precinct 13 starring Ethan Hawke and Lawrence Fishburne. It grossed an estimated $7M. Since opening last Wednesday, it has grossed a disappointing $8.6M total, despite modestly good reviews; it’s Tomatometer is 60% which is not bad for an action movie.

Rounding out the rest of the top 10 are Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera at seventh with $5M ($33.5M total), White Noise at eighth with $5M ($49.4M total), The Aviator at ninth with $4.8M ($58M total), and Elektra at tenth with $3.8M (20.2M). The Aviator had the lowest drop-off with a measly 5% of movies within the top 10; Elektra had the highest drop-off with 70% (it’s pretty safe to say that we don’t have to worry about a sequel for this film).
