Nicolas Cage Tops a Slow Weekend Box Office


Well, the Fall movie season came in with a whimper. According to Variety, "The first weekend after Labor Day is always sluggish, but this year the frame was affected by the start of the NFL football season and was particularly dreary." Bangkok Dangerous came in at No. 1, but it only earned an estimated $7.8 million and narrowly beat Tropic Thunder, which earned an estimated $7.5 million.

The House Bunny came in third place, followed by The Dark Knight in fourth and Don Cheadle's thriller Traitor in fifth place. Interestingly, Hamlet 2, which received major buzz at this year's Sundance Film Festival, is not doing too well in theaters and has only grossed an estimated $4.3 million over the two weekends it's been out.

Kind of a bummer of a weekend, but don't worry—next week The Women and Burn After Reading hit theaters! Who's excited?

i totally forgot that this movie was coming out - if that's any way to show how 'sluggish' movie season was coming in for the fall. i always pay attention to what's coming out each weekend and this was just not on the top of my list of things to even pay attention to. at least he eeked out with a #1 though right?
