"Little" Stays Big for a Second Weekend at the Box Office
Disney's "Chicken Little" managed to stay atop the box office charts for a second consecutive weekend, despite family-friendly competition of the outer space kind. "Little" added a big $32 million egg to an omelette presently worth $80.7 million, and the folks over at Disney Animation think the thing's pretty delicious. Debuting in second place was Sony's "Jumanji" in Space" adventure "Zathura," which tallied a fairly decent $14 million from 3,200 screens.

By comparison, the original "Saw" had a first-weekend "gross" of just over $18 million a year ago, on its way to a total domestic haul of $55.2 million.
