Weekend Box Office of September 1-4, 2006
The glory still belongs to "Invincible" for sure. Remains strong on its second spin on the box office over the long Labor Day weekend, the inspiring Disney's sports flick this time made its way to take in $15.2 million from Friday through Monday to stay firmly on the number one spot of the chart, lifting its 11-day total to $37.8 million.
Below "Invincible", two new wide releases, namely "Crank" and "The Wicker Man" soar high to claim the second and third position, respectively, with the former one opening at $13 million while the latter at $11.7 million. Coming up next is Fox Searchlight's road-trip comedy "Little Miss Sunshine" which delightfully managed to add another $9.7 million followed by Neil Burger's "The Illusionist" on the fifth place with $8 million.
Last-week runner up, "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby", appears to begin running out of gas as it drops quite heavily to number six after only garnering $7.7 million during the long weekend. On the other way around, Paramount's "Barnyard" receives a boost to go up three notches to the seventh position with $6.4 million.
Lining up behind to round up the top ten of U.S box office of Labor Day weekend are "World Trade Center" with $5.8 million, "Accepted" with $5.6 million, and "Step Up" with $5.5 million.
