WEEKEND BOX-OFFICE news!
The highly hyped political action thriller EAGLE EYE opened on top of the national box-office over the weekend. The film, starring Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan pulled in 29.2 million dollars in its first week in release. Despite lackluster reviews, the film felt like summer fare and, in the month of September, that’s a big advantage.
The romantic drama NIGHTS IN RODANTE, which pairs Richard Gere and Diane Lane for the third time on screen, placed second pulling in a solid 13.6 mill in business. A few other box-office items of interest: Spike Lee’s WW2 drama, MIRACLE ON ST ANNA, opened to weak reviews which pretty much solidified its fate as a 2hour and 40 minute bomb, grossing an anemic 3.5 mill in ticket-sales. It placed 9th. The Christian based film, FIREPROOF, starring born-again Kirk Cameron grossed a very healthy 6.5 mill on a budget of just 500,000. This film was heavily promoted on the CBN network where Cameron has a Christian themed hellfire program called Way of the Master. It placed 4th. Here’s a LOOK at the weekend TOP TEN
