Would have figured Astronaut Farmer to open in the top five, not at the bottom. I thought it looked pretty good.

Thanks for the numbers.

It'll be a drop from Ghost Rider's stellar numbers over the holiday weekend, but I'm shocked that it looks like it will remain the #1 or #2 movie this weekend. With the new competition, I had it falling to 3 or 4 at least.

Even though I had no plans to see it, I hoped it would do well. I'm all for family films being successful.

Maybe parents were afraid to take their kids to a Billy Bob Thornton movie?

Looks like Ghost Rider will mirror Daredevil's box office success. But it may hold up better over the next few weeks. Daredevil opened to $40 mil, but barely crossed the century mark.

Most predictions saw #23 opening at the top, guess Joel Schumacher's moving on to "DC Cab 2".... Box office mojo numbers:

2 The Number 23 $15,107,000 (new)

That's a pretty strong opening for Reno 911. Surprised Norbit is holding on so strongly. I guess this falls under the Dr. Dolittle / Daddy Day Care column, and not Showtime/Holy Man/Pluto Nash.

Astronaut Farmer actually got some pretty decent reviews (compared to most of the other movies in the Top 10) but man, those are some lousy numbers at the BO.
