Weekend Box-Office

10,000 B.C. took this weekend's box office with almost $36mil. I want to see this movie but haven't had the time just yet. I'm not really expecting a lot out of it, so maybe when I see it there will be a chance it can somewhat impress me. I guess I will have to wait and see.

Last week's #1, Semi-Pro, and #2, >Vantage Point, took a backseat to 10,000 B.C. and this weeks #2, >College Road Trip. I'm beginning to think there may have been a typo when the numbers came in because I can't imagine why anyone would have gone to see College Road Trip.

Something that may seem a little surprising to some is Vantage Point, last weeks #2, grossing more this weekend than last week's #1, Semi-Pro. To honest, though, I have seen both and my vote would definitely be for Vantage Point. Semi-Pro barely produced a chuckle from me while Vantage Point, even with it's annoying rewind thing, kept my attention. Regardless, I can't help but love Will Ferrell.

Here are the top 5:

Movie Studio Weekend Gross Total Budget
10,000 B.C. WB $35,730,000 $35,730,000 $105M
College Road Trip BV $14,000,000 $14,000,000 N/A
Vantage Point Sony $7,500,000 $51,681,000 $40M
Semi-Pro Sony $5,900,000 $24,835,000 N/A
The Bank Job LGF $5,710,000 $5,710,0000 N/A
