Weekend Box Office: Narnia On Top But Box Office Can't Shake the Blahs

View Chris Kavan's Profile

While the third entry into the Chronicles of Narnia series was #1 the weak $24.5 million was well short of the first two films and couldn't even match the $25.4 million that Golden Compass brought in 2007. The 3D aspect didn't help out the film either, even though fully half its total can be attributed to the extra dimension.

With the disappointing numbers, I suspect this is the last we will hear from this particular series, just like Golden Compass. In second place was the Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp pairing in The Tourist. With a $17 million haul, the film did okay for its genre, but was far lower than the usual opening day for the star pair.

Dropping only 33% the Disney film Tangled took third with $14.6 million and now stands at $115.6 million, surpassing The Princess and the Frog to become Disney's highest grossing non-Pixar film.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 took in an estimated $8.5 million and shot past Despicable Me as the 6th-highest grossing film of the year. The $257.7 million is second highest in the franchise after 24 days (behind Half-Blood Prince) but is still last in attendance.

Rounding out the top 5 was the train thriller Unstoppable, which has hung around surprisingly well picking up $3.75 million for a $74.3 million total.

Meanwhile, in limited release, Darren Aronofsky Black Swan continued to impress raking in $3.3 million, and a sixth place showing, from only 90 locations. With a $5.6 million total, the film has surpassed other limited release films such as The Fighter and The King's Speech. It remains to be seen if it can translate to a nationwide audience when it hits wide release on Dec. 22.

Next week's best draws look to be two old franchises brought to a new market: the updated and slick-looking TRON: Legacy and the CGI animated Yogi Bear. Also vying for attention with be the drama Rabbit Hole and the comedy How Do You Know.
