What isn’t surprising is that Jeepers Creepers 2 jumped to #1 on it’s opening weekend taking in about $18.5 million, and that Freddy vs Jason dropped all the way from #1 to #7 with just over $8 million. This isn’t surprising since word is getting around that its not that good of a film. I don’t expect that it will hit the $100 million mark.
The big surprises are Pirates of the Caribbean actually CLIMBING in its 8th week in release from #6 back up to #4 with over $10 million… in its 8th week. Pirates is looking more and more like it will hit the $300 million mark. This film seems to have more staying power than I’ve seen in a long time. Open Range, Freaky Friday and Seabiscuit also made more money this week than last week. Don’t see that often.
