Weekend Box Office Report
Posted 06.25.07 by reelz
Since when is a $32 million opening weekend and a number one ranking at the box office considered a disappointment? That's the question facing the producers of Evan Almighty this morning, as the sequel to Bruce Almighty took in less than half of what its predecessor earned over the same time period four years ago, despite a budget rumored to be over $200 million.
John Cusack's horror flick 1408 proved a pleasant surprise, coming in second with a $20.2 million take, according to boxofficemojo.com, while Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer trailed closely behind at $20.15 million in its second week of release. Rounding out the top five were Ocean's Thirteen and Knocked Up, which earned $11.3 million and $10.6 million, respectively.
