Sports comedy "Blades of Glory" debuts high at $33 million to take over the top slot from "TMNT" on weekend box office ended April 1, 2007.
Looks like comedic genre still becomes everyone's favorite in cinemas for sure as Josh Gordon and Will Speck's latest effort "Blades of Glory" instantly soars to pull a superb number of $33 million and claim itself the top holder of weekend box office ended Sunday, April 1, 2007.
The sports comedy therefore smoothly forces its closest competitor also fellow newcomer "Meet the Robinsons" to seat as the runner-up after the animated adventure turns out to score less at $25.1 million. Nevertheless, the amount the Disney production has collected proves way larger than the $11.4 million "300" has pulled, and so put the bloody epic tale on the third place, one notch lower than the rank it achieved in the previous week.
More disappointing result is experienced by other animated feat "TMNT" for the last week's champ falls quite heavily to the fourth spot, being only manages to gather $9.2 million in its second spin on the chart. "Wild Hogs" and "Shooter" come up next, the former scooping up a handful $8.6 million while the latter trailing close with $8.3 million.
Elsewhere, Columbia Pictures' thriller drama "Premonition" still remains unmoved from its previous position on number seven for its moderate effort to collect $5.2 million followed by "The Hills Have Eyes II" which this time adds another $4.1 million to its eight-place feedbag. Making up the top ten of the list are "Reign Over Me" and "The Last Mimzy", competing tightly at $3.83 million and $3.81 million, respectively.
