The Lion, the Witch, and the Very Impressive Weekend

by | December 12, 2005 | Comments

Disney & Walden’s "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" had a pretty fantastic opening weekend at the box office, pulling in just over $67 million from 3,600 theaters. "Narnia" became the #3 biggest opening of the year, behind only "Star Wars Episode 3" and "Harry Potter Episode 4."

The wide release of Stephen Gaghan‘s oil-fest "Syriana" did fairly well, pulling in $12 million from over 1,700 theaters. Third place with about $10 million was "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," which has now grossed nearly $245 million in four weeks.

Fourth and fifth place went to "Walk the Line" ($5.7m weekend, $77m total) and "Yours, Mine and Ours" ($5.1m weekend, $40.9m total).

Next week sees the release of Peter Jackson‘s highly-anticipated "King Kong" (on Wednesday) and Fox’s ensemble comedy "The Family Stone" (on Friday).
