US Box Office

With most football fans sticking to the tube, a slow box office week meant another low budget horror flick gets a free ticket to the top. When a Stranger Calls, a 1979 remake, passes its $15 million budget with a $22 million opening.
Big Momma’s House 2 drops one place, losing about 50% of its fat, with $13.4 million. Nanny McPhee also drops one place to number 3 with $9.9 million.
Most notable spot is again for Brokeback Mountain, rising to number 4 with $5.7 million. While the Oscar buzz is helping the total box office take, the average per screen topper of the past weeks is definitely slipping, diving from the record breaking $10.000+ to a more earth-bound $2,718.
Rounding out the top 5 is Hoodwinked in its fourth week with $5.3 million.
