"Silent" is Golden on a Slow Box Office Weekend

by | April 24, 2006 | Comments

Sony rode a press blackout to first place with their video game horror flick "Silent Hill." The gothic creepfest earned an estimated $20.2 million from 2,900 theaters, handily knocking last week’s champ, "Scary Movie 4," into second place.

Chapter numero cuatro in the seemingly endless spoof series, "Scary Movie 4" grabbed another $17 million, placing its total somewhere in the range of $67.7 million. Debuting in 2,800 theaters (and third place) was Fox’s secret service thriller "The Sentinel," with $14.7 million.

Fourth and fifth place went to a pair of animated animal-fests: "Ice Age: The Meltdown" ($12.8 million weekend, $168 million total) and "The Wild" ($8.1 million weekend, $22 million total), respectively.

Arriving next weekend are the last four flicks before May kick-starts the "summer" movie season: Lionsgate’s family drama "Akeelah and the Bee," Sony’s slapsticker "RV," Disney’s tween-sports flick "Stick It," and Universal’s inevitably controversial 9/11 drama, "United 93."
