Weekend Box Office: Cloverfield Cashes In
Posted 01.21.08 by reelz
Monster movie Cloverfield delivered on all the hype and then some over the weekend, raking in a phenomenal $41 million and trouncing all box office challengers. Second place finisher 27 Dresses grossed an impressive $22.4 million -- a figure possibly inflated moviegoers buying tix for the Katherine Heigl rom-com and then sneaking into sold-out Cloverfield screenings.
Third place The Bucket List grossed a healthy $15.2 million in its second week of wide release, while Juno grabbed fourth place with a $10.3 million take. Rounding out the top five with an $8.1 million tally was National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
