Well, it appears that history and ancient things still strive as interesting subject for most people as the Fox release "Night at the Museum" remains unmoved from the top slot of weekend box office ended Sunday, January 7, 2007.
Seating on the spot for a third-straight weekend, the family-friendly PG flick gloriously took in $23.7 million, again putting its rival "The Pursuit of Happyness" on number two for the inspiring rags-to-riches tale turned out to only pull $12.8 million in ticket sales. Nevertheless, the modest income delightfully is more than enough to bring the Sony production surpassing a $120 million mark in its fourth spin on the chart.
As the third-place holder, here comes Universal's sci-fi thriller "Children of Men" which expands from its Christmas debut in a number of theaters to garner $10.1 million. Rounding out the big five of the list are newcomer "Freedom Writers" and last-week second runner up "Dreamgirls" with $9.4 million and $8.6 million, respectively.
Another new release, "Happily N'Ever After", pops out to claim the next position below after managing to conjure up a modest income of $6.6 million, slightly above "Charlotte's Web" and "The Good Shepherd" as the former made its way to collect $6.5 million while the latter $6.4 million. Making up the top ten are two sports drama of "Rocky Balboa" with $6 million and "We Are Marshall" with $4.8 million.
