"Doom" Goes Boom at the Weekend Box Office

by | October 24, 2005 | Comments

The Rock‘s trek through a "Doom"-filled space station was enough to bring in an estimated $15.4 million from over 3,000 screens, giving the flick the #1 spot over a handful of other newcomers. Disney’s inspirational horse drama "Dreamer," which was "Inspired by a True Story," snagged the #2 spot with $9.3 million from 2,000 theaters.

Still treading water in third place is the animated comedy "Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit," which added another $8.7 million to its $44 million total. Fourth place went to last weekend’s #1 flick, "The Fog," which made $7.3 million this weekend and $21.5 million all told. Rounding out the top five is the newcomer "North Country," which netted only $6.5 million from 2,500 theaters in its initial weekend. But it still did better than Marc Forster‘s "Stay," which made only $2.1 million from 1,700 theaters in its opening frame.

Several limited release titles are faring rather well this time of year: George Clooney‘s "Good Night, and Good Luck" almost cracked the top ten with $2.3 million … and it’s only playing on 225 screens! Steve Martin‘s "Shopgirl" and Shane Black‘s "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" also netted some impressive per-screen numbers, which means if you’re not into space aliens and inspirational horses, head on down to the arthouses!

Next week sees the release of four new wide releases: Lions Gate’s horror sequel "Saw 2," Sony’s adventure sequel "The Legend of Zorro," Paramount’s Nic Cage dramedy "The Weather Man," and Universal’s rom-com "Prime."
