Weekend Box Office Round-up & SNL

Weekend Box Office Round-up & SNL

Looks like baseball in Boston is back to its losing streak. Fever Pitch came in third this weekend with only an estimated $13M. Apparently baseball movies don't typically open up very strong and Jimmy Fallon may be second-guessing his retirement from SNL.

Jimmy, Drew and Justin acted in a skit this weekend on SNL to help out friend Cameron Diaz. It was not that funny but worth the extra air time this weekend to try to remind viewers they had a movie premiering (in case you missed all the press earlier in the week). Following Jimmy's other horrible movie, Taxi, he may be getting nervous. He also did an awkward guest appearance on the Weekend Update with Tina Fey.

So that means Sahara won the weekend slot with $18.5M in ticket sales. Looks like all the driving around the country in an RV made Middle America happy. Box Office Mojo reports that markets that Matthew drove through to promote the movie did well - so the drive was well worth it. Guess he'll be playing his bongos some more this weekend. This is also the first weekend a popular off-screen romance actually won the weekend (no Bennifer backlash for MattPene)

In second place was Sin City with $14M. Overall, America did not spend too much time at the movies this weekend - maybe the weather was too nice as spring was in full effect this weekend all over the country.
