CGI-animated feature "TMNT" ends the reign of "300" on the weekend domestic box office ended Sunday, March 25, 2007.
Well, seems the reptilian quartet is back to the big screen only to win indeed. The CGI-animated restart of the crime-fighting franchise, "TMNT", wonderfully strives hard in its debut to collect a superb income of $24.2 million, thereby takes over the No.1 spot from "300" on the weekend box office for March 23-25, 2007.
Though has to be content seating as the runner-up this time, the epic saga telling about Battle of Thermopylae satisfyingly keeps scoring high in its third spin on the chart as it manages to pull a still-sizeable $19.8 million, preventing another potential newcomer "Shooter" to go any higher than number three after it turns out to fare lesser at $14.5 million.
Bowing on the next two positions are "Wild Hogs" and "The Last Mimzy", the former drawing another $13.8 million in its pocket while the latter garnering $10 million to make up the big five of the list. Horror feat "The Hills Have Eyes II" trails close behind on number six with $9.6 million followed by Columbia Pictures' drama thriller "Premonition" which is able to scoop $9.5 million in its second run in the competition.
Meanwhile, two other new releases "Reign Over Me" and "Pride" delightfully make their way to scoop up respective income of $7.4 million and $3.5 million to firmly stand on the eighth and ninth slot with James Wan-directed flick "Dead Silence" slipping to number ten after merely adding $3.4 million into its pocket.
