Another Weekend Box Office

...and Meet the Robinsons still grooves along in the #3 position. ($75.1 million and counting).

Will Ferrell still skates at #2, and the Disturbed People still sit atop the heap.

The Turtles have carved out $51.3 million at the fifteenth position.

Update One: Friday results are in, and a raft of new entries have pushed old entries further downstream.

While Disturbia remained on top with $4.7 million, newcomers Fracture, Vacancy, Hot Fuzz and In the Land of Women nicked the box office returns of Blades of Glory and Meet the Robinsons.

Blades fell to the fourth position and a $2.5 million Friday gross, while Robinsons declined to #7 and a $1.8 million take.

Update Two: The final weekend tally is in, and holdovers Disturbia, Blades of Glory and Meet the Robinsons finish at #1, #3, and #5.

Blades glided over the $100 million marker this weekend, and now totals $101 million. (Weekend take: $7.8 million).

Robinsons stands at $82.2 million (and 7.1 million for the three days.)

TMNT, still at the #15, now totals $52.3 million.

(Interesting side note: DreamWorks -- live action division -- currently has the #1 Disturbia and #3 Blades of Glory. That half of DreamWorks, of course, is owned by Paramount/Viacom, while DreamWorks Animation continues on as an independent company that releases through Paramount.)

Its too bad the youth of today has no knowledge of the Hitchcock classic 'REAR WINDOW'. a 20 year kid that is an assistant editor for us never heard of the film but thought Disturbia was original.

I'm also still hoping MTR can at least pass the 100 mil mark.

First thing I thought when I saw the trailer for Distubed. "reminds me of 'Rear Window'"...
