Box Office: The Day the Earth Earned a Lot of Money


The Day the Earth Stood Still may not have been a critical hit but it is now officially a box office success, earning $31 million over the weekend and topping Four Christmases, which slid into second place. Twilight, Bolt, and Australia followed in third, fourth, and fifth places respectively.

Meanwhile, Variety is reporting that smaller, independent films "delivered one of the best weekends ever for the specialty box office." Movies like Doubt, The Reader and Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino all enjoyed strong debuts, while movies like Milk and Frost/Nixon continue to draw good sized audiences in theaters.

Milk is wonderful; Sean Penn is absolutely phenomenal in the title role.

i'm still awed by the fact that twilight is still in the top 5 seeing as how SO MANY movies have opened but that's ok :) i'm happy about that . as for the #1 - i didn't have any desire to see it - so i'm not party of the success - but if a lot of folks liked it - then that's good for them.
