Weekend Box Office: Semi-Pro semi-disappoints
Posted 03.03.08 by reelz
Ironic Will Ferrell Sports Comedy™ Semi-Pro led a lackluster weekend at the box office with a modest $15.2 million tally, narrowly avoiding a potentially embarrassing defeat to action thriller Vantage Point, which earned $13 million in its second week of release. Taking third place with an $8.8 million gross was The Spiderwick Chronicles, followed by the Natalie Portman/Scarlett Johansson tag-team period drama The Other Boleyn Girl at $8.3 million. Rounding out the top five was Hayden Christensen's teleportastic Jumper, which took in $7.6 million.
