Weekend Box Office Recap

Despite Christian zealots that protested it, Golden Compass directed audience members to let go of $26 million this weekend to score the number one spot in the box office.

Enchanted" dropped 35%

Focus Feature's "Atonement" with Keira Knightley and James McAvoy was only released into 32 theaters, no doubt using the word-of-mouth tactic to help boost its popularity. It cleared $25,000 per screen, which is pretty amazing. We'll see what happens when they put it into a wider audience market. Is this a solid film, or are people just going to see the sweaty and uncomfortable sex scenes between its two stars?
