American Gangster Steals Box Office's Top Slot from Saw IV

American Gangster Steals Box Office's Top Slot from Saw IV

The crime drama replaced the gory horror as the No.1 movie on the chart ended Sunday, November 4, 2007.

Good reviews and packed theaters are obviously two desired goal every big screen title aims for when it comes to the surface, and it appears that true-life crime saga "American Gangster" has achieved them both to secure the No. 1 spot on the weekend box office running November 2-4, 2007.

Surpassing the expectations of its distributor, the Universal Pictures release successfully sold $43.6 million worth of tickets during its three-day debut, a remarkable number its fellow newcomer and closest competitor "Bee Movie" failed to beat. Despite the heavy marketing, the family cartoon sadly fared less with $38 million, but it was powerful enough to push last-week champ "Saw IV" to number three as the horror pic scored way lower at $10.3 million.

Rom-com flick "Dan in Real Life" came up behind after managing to pull $7.87 million, followed by former top holder "The Game Plan" which gathered another $3.93 million to round out the big five of the chart. On the sixth rank, there was vampire tale "30 Days of Night"that still did fairly well with $ 3.74 million.

Another new release "Martian Child" landed on the next position for its decent effort to collect $3.38 million into its pocket with Tony Gilroy-directed "Michael Clayton" trailing at $2.79 million. Making up the top ten of the list were Lionsgate comedy "Why Did I Get Married?" and mystery drama "Gone Baby Gone", the former garnering $2.6 million while the latter taking a slightly lower income of $2.24 million.
