Wallace & Gromit are Big Cheese at the Weekend Box Office

by | October 10, 2005 | Comments

DreamWorks’ clay-mated "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" snagged the #1 spot at the weekend box office with a decent haul of $16.1 million from over 3,600 theaters, handily bumping Jodie Foster‘s "Flightplan" (and its third weekend tally of $10.8 million) into second place.

Curtis Hanson‘s female-oriented "In Her Shoes" debuted on over 3,500 screens and pulled in an estimated $10 million. The rest of the top 5 was populated by a pair of newcomers: The Al Pacino / Matthew McConaughey gambling drama "Two for the Money" made $8.4 million from just under 2,400 theaters, while Screen Gems’ "The Gospel" proved more popular than expected. That film did about $8 million from only 970 theaters.

Also debuting last Friday was Lions Gate’s restaurant comedy "Waiting," which grossed about $5.7 million from just under 1,700 theaters.

"Browncoats" who were hoping for a resurgent second weekend from Joss Whedon‘s "Serenity" may end up feeling a little disappointed. The well-reviewed sci-fi flick dropped 51% from its first weekend, and made about $4.9 million in its sophomore frame. "Serenity" has a total tally of $17.6 so far.

Next week sees the release of Cameron Crowe‘s romantic / dramatic comedy "Elizabethtown," Columbia’s remake of John Carpenter‘s "The Fog," and Keira Knightley as a model turned bounty hunter in "Domino."
