Coach Carter Victorious over MLK Weekend
Meet the Fockers dropped to second place with a still great $22.5M. Its cum now stands at an unbelievable $234.3M after just four weeks of release, easily outgrossing its predecessor's $166M. This is Ben Stiller?s highest grossing film ever.
Racing Stripes raced to a solid third place finish with $18.9M. This is Frankie Muniz?s best debut thus far in his early movie career, slightly ahead of 2003?s Agent Cody Banks.
In Good Company, starring Dennis Quaid and Scarlett Johansson, opened wide this past weekend and placed fourth. The best reviewed of this weekend?s openers with a Tomatometer of 83%, it grossed a respectable $16.6M.
The last of this past weekend?s debuts and easily the worst reviewed of the bunch with a Tomatometer of a very moldy 7%, Elektra grossed a mediocre $14.8M.
Last weekend?s surprise hit White Noise dropped to sixth place with an estimated $13.8M. Its total thus far is a scary $42.9M. It's the first sleeper hit of 2005 and Michael Keaton's best performing movie at the box office since 1992's Batman Returns.
Rounding out the rest of the top 10 are The Aviator with $6.4M (cum $51.5M), Lemony Snicket?s A Series of Unfortunate Events with $5.3M (cum $112.4M), The Phantom of the Opera with $4.6M (cum $27.5M), and Fat Albert with $3.8M (cum $45.6M).
