Remains strong despite the arrivals of several new titles on Friday, October 5, 2007, family comedy "The Game Plan" wonderfully continues to hold the top position on the weekend box office competition ended Sunday, October 7.
The Walt Disney Pictures release still did great in garnering big bucks into its pocket by collecting $16.6 million, a number that newcomer "The Heartbreak Kid" failed to surpass. The Farrelly brothers-directed only managed to take in a modest income $14 million that was below the expectation of Paramount and DreamWorks Pictures, the studios producing the flick.
Right behind the rom-com movie was political thriller "The Kingdom" as it added another $9.72 million to raise its total haul to $31.75 million so far. Former champ "Resident Evil: Extinction" popped up next for a decent income of $4.52 million followed by teenage fantasy tale "The Dark Is Rising" which smoothly fared $3.75 million in its debut on the chart.
Number six went to sex comedy "Good Luck Chuck" after its fair attempt to pull in $3.66 million, slightly above the $3.22 million Western film "3:10 to Yuma has scored down. Making up the top ten of the list were urban musical drama "Feel the Noise", New Line Cinema's "Mr. Woodcock", and vengeance thriller "The Brave One" with competitive tally of $3.19 million, $2.33 million, and $2.32 million, respectively.
