Box Office: National Treasure Still Gold, Juno Keeps Climbing

For the third weekend in a row, National Treasure: Book of Secrets led the way at the box office, bringing in a respectable $20.2 million. This is nice and all, but the real success story this weekend is that of Juno, the little indie movie that has consistently jumped higher and higher in the box office ranks over its five-week run at the theaters.

More often than not movies experience a decline at the box office after the initial buzz dies down, but not little Juno. Granted, it opened in more theaters this weekend, but the numbers for this movie are still wildly impressive — particularly for an independent film. According to Variety, the movie will most likely become Fox Searchlight's most lucrative project, as it's gunning to outpace both Sideways and Little Miss Sunshine.

I Am Legend just barely pushed its way to second place with $16.4 million, just over Juno's $16.2 million. Alvin and the Chipmunks refused to budge from the top five, landing at No. 4. Rounding out the top five was newbie horror flick One Missed Call.

I also don't understand why so many people are going to see National Treasure. This came up in conversation the weekend that the movie came out, and I was told that in this new movie, they realized that there was something else they had to find. What a ridiculous story!! I haven't seen Juno, but I plan to. I have heard rave reviews from friends and I just think it sounds like a very sweet movie. But I gotta represent Alvin and the Chipmunks!! It's different from the TV show that I loved when I was a kid, but it's still so adorable and full of heart. It'll make you laugh, smile and go "awwww" constantly, and I was singing with every one of the original songs during the movie :) See The Chipmunks!!!

I cannot believe anyone is going to see National Treasure. I saw the first one by accident when the purchase online tickets were not waiting for us at the theater--our consolation prize was NT. What a disaster! and now the president's book of secrets? seriously!?

I'm telling you, it's going to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, just like Little Miss Sunshine and Sideways were. There's usually an underdog every year.
