Denzel is the "Man" at the Weekend Box Office

by | March 27, 2006 | Comments

Denzel Washington‘s bank heist thriller "Inside Man" snagged the #1 spot at the weekend box office derby, pulling in an estimated $29 million from about 2,800 theaters — which is good news, because if the big-budget, big-actor flick had debuted behind a Disney horror movie or a Larry the Cable Guy comedy, Universal would have been pretty darn angry.

Last week’s #1 title, WB’s "V for Vendetta," plunged more than 50% and raked in an additional $12.3 million, giving it a grand (domestic) total of about $46.2 million. Third place went to Disney’s PG-13 "horror" movie "Stay Alive," which made $11.2 million from 2,000 screens, while fourth and fifth place went to the rom-com "Failure to Launch" ($10.8 million, $63.9m total) and the kiddie flick "The Shaggy Dog" ($9.1 million, $47.9m total).

Debuting in 7th place was Lionsgate’s "Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector," which earned about $7 million from 1,700 theaters.

Next week’s big releases are Warner’s urban drama "ATL," Sony’s long-arriving "Basic Instinct 2," Fox’s animated sequel "Ice Age: The Meltdown," and Universal’s tongue-in-cheek splatter-fest "Slither."
