Cloverfield of course came in first with $41 Million That's a bit surprising considering all the hype around it, but after watching this, I can see why it didn't get close to our projected 80. You can read my review HERE.

Chick flick 27 Dresses happily came in second with $22 Million. I have not seen this yet, but I am going to say that I am very proud that this stayed to compete with Cloverfield ever since hearing about all the films that got pushed back because the studios did not want to compete.

The Bucket List made the top 5 cut this weekend, and even though it hasn't surpassed it's budget, it's a big deal with it being a limited release.

Juno is still kicking ass and taking names. It's soooooooo close to the $100 million mark, which will make it the highest grossing independent film of all time. I'm sure you hate us with all the Juno stuff we are shoving down your throat without a spoon, but we don't care.

And last, National Treasure is well on it's way to the one trillion dollar mark. Cool. Read Cameron's review HERE.

    27 dresses actually was not that bad.
    yes, it’s a combination of:
    how to lose a guy in ten days
    runaway bride
    my best friend’s wedding
    and never been kissed

    but in an enjoyable way.
    plus, it was actually supposed to have been released EARLIER. but surprisingly chose to open the same weekend as cloverfield.
