Weekend U.S Box Office of October 6-8, 2006

Departed, The picture


Warner Bros.' mob saga "The Departed" emerged with full force to gather $23 million and take the first rank of weekend box office ended Sunday, October 8, 2006.

Good story and good cast sure are two of the determining factors for a film feature to hit the screen hard and "The Departed" has proven it gloriously, really.

Opened in 3,017 theaters, the mob saga fantastically strived to sell $27 million worth of tickets to go straight away to the top position of weekend box office ended Sunday, October 8, 2006, muscling out fellow newcomer "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning."

Forced to seat on the second place, the prequel to New Line Cinema's 2003 film "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", however, managed to score well in its debut, drawing in $18.5 million to fully cover its production budget of $16 million for sure. Trailing behind is last weekend's top film "Open Season" which this time made its way to add another $15.6 million and so raises its 10-day total to $43.7 million.

New at no. 4 is Lionsgate's workplace comedy "Employee of the Month" as it succeeded to collect $11.4 million followed by "The Guardian" with $ 9.5 million to round up the top five of the list. Meanwhile, the sixth spot goes to "Jackass Number Two" that still results fairly well on the chart, taking in $6.5 million to make a total domestic gross of $ 62.8 million so far.

Lining up in order to the tenth slot are comedic fare "School for Scoundrels" with $3.4 million, Jet Li's latest martial arts picture of "Fearless" with $2.28 million, Columbia's inspiring sports movie "Gridiron Gang" with $2.23 million, and Yari Film Group's "The Illusionist" with $1.8 million.
