Carell's "Virgin" Remains On Top (of the Box Office Chart)

by | August 29, 2005 | Comments

Universal’s "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" maintained its grasp on first place at the box office for a second consecutive weekend, beating out a trio of newcomers without exerting too much effort. "Virgin" pulled in $16.4 million in its second frame, which is a rather impressive 23% decline from its opening weekend. So far the 40-year-old has sold nearly $49 million worth of tickets.

Debuting in second place was Terry Gilliam‘s "The Brothers Grimm," which tallied just over $15 million from just under 3,100 theaters. Also holding over fairly well from last weekend was Wes Craven‘s "Red Eye," which added just over $10 million to its $32.6 million total.

The top five was rounded out by Paramount’s "Four Brothers" ($7.8m weekend; $55.3m total) and "Wedding Crashers," which tossed an extra $6.2 million on to its $187.7 million money-pile.

This past Friday also saw the rather inauspicious release of the subterranean chiller "The Cave," which made about $6.2 million from 2,200 theaters, and the ensemble rom-com "Undiscovered," which brought in under $700,000 from 1,300 theaters.

Next week sees four new wide (or semi-wide) releases, including Fernando Meirelles‘ "The Constant Gardener," WB’s oft-delayed "A Sound of Thunder," Fox’s genre sequel "Transporter 2," and the Miramax high-school comedy "Underclassman."

As always, you should feel free to stop by the Rotten Tomatoes Box Office page for a closer look at the cineplex moneymakers.
