US Box Office

Another slow week at the box office despite a whole slate of new releases. First up, makes you wonder if anyone is paying attention to trailers. The most horrible one this year is Doom (especially the continuous use of the PC game’s First Person perspective. Come on, if I wanted to see that, I’d play the game). Still it ends up at the top spot, albeit at a lowly $$15.4 million (with only a slight chance to regain its $70 million budget).
At two, families flocked to see Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story. Starring Kurt Russell and Dakota Fanning, it earned $9.3 million.
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit slips to the third place with $8.7 million, while The Fog is on the way to clear up, at number 4 with $7.3 million.
Rounding out the top five is Charlize Theron starrer North Country. Supposedly another Oscar contender, it earns only $6.5 million (still more than Monster’s weekend grosses in 2003).
