US Box Office

Apparently, Borat is up for a Pulitzer Prize soon, as the Kazak journalist blasts to the box office top spot this week with his documentary Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Opening at just 837 locations, it still earned a whopping $26.5 million. Where $10.000+ per screen is more an exception than a rule for the number one, Borat manages $31.607 per screen. Jagshemash to that.
A bit too early for my taste, but The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause manages a runner-up spot with $19.5 million. Close behind is a Dreamworks/Aardman Animation collaboration, Flushed Away, with $18.8 million.
With three new entries, it means a big drop for Saw III, now at 4 with $14.8 million. Rounding out the top 5 is The Departed, with $7.7 million in its fifth week, with a total of $102 million. This is just an inch away from Martin Scorcese’s current highest grossing movie, The Aviator ($102.6 million).
