November 05, 2007 05:26:27 GMT


Good reviews and packed theaters are obviously two desired goal every big screen title aims for when it comes to the surface, and it appears that true-life crime saga "American Gangster" has achieved them both to secure the No. 1 spot on the weekend box office running November 2-4, 2007.

Surpassing the expectations of its distributor, the Universal Pictures release successfully sold $43.6 million worth of tickets during its three-day debut, a remarkable number its fellow newcomer and closest competitor "Bee Movie" failed to beat. Despite the heavy marketing, the family cartoon sadly fared less with $38 million, but it was powerful enough to push last-week champ "Saw IV" to number three as the horror pic scored way lower at $10.3 million.
