Superhero movie "Ghost Rider" overthrows "Norbit" to be the top holder of weekend box office ended February 18, 2007.
The hot flame of "Ghost Rider" has blazed brightly to burn all blocking its way on the box office. Soaring high in its debut, the superhero flick triumphantly claims the No.1 spot on the chart, drawing in a fantastic amount of $45.3 million, way far above the $22.5 million its fellow newcomer "Bridge to Terabithia" has collected during weekend ended February 18, 2007.
Though severely beaten, the Disney production, however, proves to strike harder than last-week's top film "Norbit" as the larger-than-life comedy only manages to put another $16.7 million into its pocket to seat on the third place in its second round in the competition.
Other three new releases namely "Music and Lyrics", "Daddy's Little Girls", and "Breach" delightfully secure the next three ranks with $13.6 million, $11.2 million, and $10.5 million, respectively, followed by "Hannibal Rising" which falls five notches to number seven for its modest effort in merely gaining $5.4 million.
Lining up in order to make the best ten of the list are Universal's rom-com flick "Because I Said So" with $5 million, Columbia Pictures' horror feat "The Messengers" with 3.76 million, and Fox's family-friendly comedy "Night at the Museum" with $3.7 million.
