For moviegoers, turkey probably is not the most wanted bird for the Thanksgiving holiday this year for all of their eyes seem to be riveted on penguin instead.
Yes, for the second time the animated tale of this "well-dressed" creature, "Happy Feet", gloriously takes the top slot on the weekend box office ended Sunday, November 26, 2006, pulling $37 million in ticket sales to once again best its tough rival "Casino Royale."
Though remains on number two, this newest adventure of British superspy James Bond still did well as it manages to score down a $30.7 million tally to make a total gross of $94 million so far. Filling in the next two spots below are surprisingly newcomers "Deja Vu" and "Deck the Halls", the former collecting $20.5 million while the latter $12 million.
On the fifth position seats controversial mockumentary "Borat" after making its way to gain a fair result of $10.3 million followed by "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause" which trails close behind at $9.9 million.
Lining up in order to make the best ten of the list are DreamWorks' animated picture "Flushed Away" with $5.75 million, Columbia Pictures' dramedy "Stranger Than Fiction" with $5.72 million, The Weinstein Co.'s ensemble drama "Bobby" with $4.8 million, and Darren Aronofsky's "The Fountain" with $3.7 million.
