The Weekend Numbers

In what now seems like a rare occurrence, no new animated features opened this weekend, but there are still five of them in the weekend box office chart. The surprising Talladega Nights scored number one again, with $23 million, though it had a 51% drop from it's opening weekend. Oliver Stone's World Trade Center was a disappointing third (it was expected to do much better), and the craftily marketed Step Up took second... Barnyard continues to surprise, beating forecasts again with a little over $10 million for fourth place and a smallish 36% drop from the previous weekend. That's far from Cars numbers, but it now stands at $34 million. Monster House took 10th in its fourth weekend, with $3.3 mill and a $63+ million cume. Things went from bad to worse for The Ant Bully, slipping to 15th place after a 54% drop in its third weekend ($1.7 million for the weekend, and $22.4 million total). Cars inched close to the $239 million mark, putting it in the ballpark of Toy Story 2 ($245.9), Monsters ($255.9), and Incredibles ($261.4). And Over the Hedge eased past the $154 million mark in the late stages of its domestic release.
