Happy Feet and Casino Royale 1 And 2 At Boxoffice For 3rd Week

I can’t remember the last time this has happened. For the third straight week Happy Feet and Casino Royale have come in at #1 and #2 at the boxoffice. “Happy Feet” got $17 million in the three days beginning December 1, taking its total to $121 million and “Casino Royale” followed with $15.1 million, for a three-week total $115.9 million.

Are these two films really that good? Or is it just a matter of the competition over the last 3 weeks have really been that poor? Deja Vu came in 3rd place for the 2nd week in a row.

Of the new films that opening this week, The Nativity Story came in 4th with $8 million… which was pretty much to be expected, so that’s not too bad. Turistas BOMBED despite a late heavy marketing push coming in 8th in it’s opening week with $3.5 million, and National Lampoon’s Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj did even worse with more screens coming in 10th with a pathetic $2.3 million… but did anyone really expect it to do any better than that?

This week will be interesting. Apocalypto is opening… so look for it to finally knock Happy Feet out of top spot. I have no clue how well it will do (I’m thinking about $20 million opening weekend). We’ll have to wait and see.
