"Borat" remains unbeatable on the weekend box office competition ended November 12, 2006.
Huge attention apparently still directed toward "Borat" despite its recent negative publications as the picture gloriously proves to once more become the no. 1 movie on the weekend box office of November 10-12, 2006.
Thanks to a boost in the number of North American theaters, the mockumentary easily draws in $28.2 million after expanding to 2,566 sites from a limited 837 locations, forcing "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause", which scores far below at $16.9 million, to again seat as the runner-up.
The no. 3 film also remains unchanged from last week for "Flushed Away" continues to trail close the Disney's flick with $16.6 million, in the meantime raising its total sum to $39.8 million so far. Following behind are newcomer "Stranger Than Fiction" that opens well at $13.4 million and "Saw III" with $6.9 million to make up the big five of the list.
Finishes on number six is the R-rated Paramount Vantage multiple story drama "Babel" after it successfully managed to collect $5.5 million from a $4,517 per screen averaged, a notch above "The Departed" which this time can only add up $5.1 million into its pocket.
Securing the eighth slot is Christopher Nolan's magician saga "The Prestige" with $4.7 million while the ninth and tenth go to two other newcomers namely "The Return" with $4.4 million and "A Good Year" with $3.7 million, respectively.
