'Prince Caspian' Dethroned 'Iron Man' From Box Office Reign

May 19, 2008 02:31:23 GMT

In the movie, Prince Caspian sets his eyes to stop the evil ruler of the Telmarines from destroying his beloved land and to claim his right for Narnia's throne. With the help of the previous legendary Narnia's rulers, the Pevensie siblings, it seems that the job will be a pretty easy one. However, in the box office, a not-so-easy task lays ahead. To land atop the revenue chart, "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" has to face off with back-to-back topper "Iron Man". Still, the adventure movie managed to debut on top and forced the man suited in armor suit to pass up the box office crown.

Considered to be a better challenger to the Robert Downey Jr.-starrer action film than "Speed Racer", the Disney's sequel film to "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" proved to have a strong line of fanatics when it managed to end the domination of the Marvel Entertainment's superhero tidbit. The Andrew Adamson's family movie opened number one on the box office chart pulling in approximately $56.6 million from the 3,929 theaters it was screened. It scored around twenty million more than "Iron Man" which slipped to the second place in its third weekend grossing an estimated $31.2 million.

Abrams has hinted that the possibility of a sequel has been discussed. However, lately the filmmaker has come out with a contrasting comment.

Commenting on the sequel at a New York press conference on May 15, the "Star Trek" director confessed that he is more interested on working on another project with writer Drew Goddard and director Matt Reeves than making the sequel. "So my dream is to work with [Goddard and Reeves] again, but do something that's [new]," explained the "Mission: Impossible III" director and co-writer. "We're talking about it. But the truth is there's another idea that I'd rather do with the same people than do a sequel. It's a whole new thing."
