"The Fog" Sweeps Into Box Office First Place

by | October 17, 2005 | Comments

The third horror remake to hit the screens this year, Rupert Wainwright‘s "The Fog," beat down a pair of other newcomers to grab the top spot in a rather flimsy box office weekend. Remake of a well-remembered John Carpenter flick of the same name, "The Fog" grossed $12.2 in its opening frame, handily overtaking new movies by Cameron Crowe and Tony Scott.

Holding on in second place was DreamWorks’ "Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit," which snagged $11.7 million, while Mr. Crowe’s romantic comedy "Elizabethtown" netted about $11 million.

Fourth place went to the hangin’ around airplane thriller "Flightplan," which added another $6.5 to its total tally, and Curtis Hanson‘s "In Her Shoes" rounded out the top 5 with a haul of $6.1 million.

The Tony Scott / Keira Knightley collaboration "Domino" debuted in 6th place by pulling in only $4.7 million.

Next week sees the release of four new movies: the videogame adaptation of "Doom," the family-friendly horse flick "Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story," the sexual harrassment drama "North Country," and the Ewan McGregor psycho-thriller "Stay."

As always, you’re invited to stop by the Rotten Tomatoes Box Office page for a closer look at the numbers.
