National Treasure is Golden Over Holiday Weekend

National Treasure: Book of Secrets, the sequel to Nicolas Cage's 2004 hit, scored big at the box office over the long holiday weekend, bringing in an estimated $65 million in the five-day period between Friday and Tuesday.

I Am Legend finished second, pulling in an estimated $47.5 million over the five days. Fox wouldn't estimate how much money Alvin and the Chipmunks made over the long weekend, but as of Sunday it had brought in $29 million and was in third place behind National Treasure and Legend.

Two Golden Globe nominees, Charlie Wilson's War and Sweeney Todd, battled for fourth and fifth place. Charlie Wilson brought in $14.8 million over five days, edging Sweeney Todd with $12.8 million.

Other notable numbers: P.S. I Love You finished sixth with $9.1 million. Meanwhile, Walk Hard failed to match the heights of Superbad or Knocked Up, bringing in just $5.8 million.

Next week's numbers should be interesting, as three relatively big movies — Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem, The Great Debaters, and The Water Horse — opened on Christmas Day.

I saw this and I thought it SUCKED so bad. I couldn't wait for it to end. It was so contrived and simply unbelieveable. I was also extremely distracted by Nicholas Cage's fake teeth...and hair.

just came back from watching national treasure 2 and thought it was so much better than the first one - just a great entertaining movie to watch today on boxing day (in canada when the sales are incredible) while everyone was busy buying things they dont' need for cheaper prices. :) i love adventure type movies like that.i saw i am legend recently and even though it was well-acted it was hmm...a bit weird?! why on earth did the producer or whomever think it'd make a good film from a book? very bizarre.

I watched Atonement and I am Legend this weekend. Both were good. Atonement was DEPRESSING, but the movie was beautifully done. I loved how the music was mingled into the things the characters were doing. Also I Am Legend was good. I don't usually like scary movies, but really it wasn't too bad. The creatures were scarier in the beginning when you don't see them fully. But Will was great! And I loved the dog, she's beautiful

National Treasure 2 was good, silly fun as was Walk Hard. I'd recommend both if you're looking for entertainment.
