Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige" has hit the screen hard enough in its debut to become the no. 1 movie on weekend box office ended October 22, 2006.
The magician's show has proven to be a great success that really charms the audience.
Opening at $14.8 million, Christopher Nolan's film adaptation of the tale of two Victorian age stage magicians "The Prestige" has satisfyingly bested all of its competitors to take down the weekend box office's no. 1 slot of October 20-22, 2006, forcing mob flick "The Departed" to once more become the runner-up in its third spin on the chart.
Still, this latest outing of Martin Scorsese keeps scoring high as it delightfully adds up another $13.7 million into its pocket to raise its total sum to $77.1 million so far, in turn preventing another new release "Flags of Our Fathers" to strive higher than the third position on the list for the war saga only managed to draw a handful of $10.2 million in its debut.
On number four, here comes "Open Season" with $8 million followed by 20th Century Fox's family drama "Flicka" and last week's champ "The Grudge 2" which both scored $7.7 million. Seating on the seventh spot is "Man of the Year" that this time made its way to collect $7 million and so, brings a ten-day total of $ 22.5 million.
The rest positions up to number ten lined up in order are Sofia Coppola's historical drama "Marie Antoinette" with $5.3 million, The 20th Century Fox's "The Marine" with $ 3.795 million and New Line Cinema's horror flick "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" with $3.779 million.
