Weekend Box Office 2/3-2/5

from Box Office Mojo

$$ in millions.

Friday's numbers

1. When a Stranger Calls: $9.2, $9.2
2. Big Momma's House 2: $4, $36
3. Nanny McPhee: $2.3, $19
4. Brokeback Mountain: $1.9, $55.9
5. Something New: $1.8, $1.8
6. Underworld: Evolution: $1.7, $49.3
7. Annapolis: $1.2, $10.7
8. Hoodwinked: $1.1, $39.9
9. Walk the Line: $1.0, $108.3
10. Glory Road: $980,000, $36.9

I don't think When a Stranger Calls was screened for critics. It's getting "Fog-like" reviews. I guess teenagers have absolutely nothing else to do this weekend as they're going to push this to a $20 million weekend.

I hate it when people bring up the PG-13 stuff, it doesn't suck because it's PG-13.

That said, yeah, teens flock to the shitty stuff these days, though I'm guilty too, afterall I paid to see shitfests such as The One, Hollowman, Van Helsing, and Highlander: End Game.

It may not suck because it's PG-13, but it's not great...because it's PG-13.

It sucks because it's a piece of shit. And because it's PG-13.

You guys are thinking too small. A PG-13 remake of Cannibal Holocaust would rock the mother-farking house!

Why have a PG-13 Cannibal Holocaust when we can have a PG-13 remake of Salo?

Enjoy the raping, pedophilia, and shiteating with the entire fucking family!

I can't seem to find the budget for WASC. It can't be much, from the looks of the trailer. I thought maybe remakes were on the way out, but it seems like they just dropped budgets instead.

Good to see Brokeback Mtn. hanging in there. It might make $100 million at this slow and steady rate.

I would be shocked if it cost more than $15 million.

I remade that movie in HS with friends for a lot less than $15 mil. and from the looks of the trailer, this one doesnt look all that better. I knew I could have been one of those damn film-makers. But nooooo, I had to go to fucking college. Stupid parents.

$15 million is about right for the WASC budget.

No surprise, but most of the Best Picture nominees got a boost this weekend. Brokeback Mountain will likely pass $100 million when all is said and done.

Capote with a nice $2.5 million take.

When a Stranger Calls better enjoy this weekend with Final Destination 3 out next weekend, and the Harrison Ford thriller Firewall.

Box Office Guru had a good take on the small increases and shrinking per-theater averages of the nominees.

I think Bareback will end up around 80mill - which is very, very successful for that film.

I did just think of Philadelphia today, and for a film going on 13 yrs old that would've been close to 150m adjusted...

I guess Annapolis is the first bomb of 2006.

I guess you missed the release of Bloodrayne and Grandma's Boy.

Bloodrayne cost almost $30 million and made $2 million.

Grandma's Boy cost around $15 million and made $5 million.
