"Scary" Weekend for Spoof Competitors
Still going pretty darn strong in second place was Fox's Ice Age: The Meltdown, which added another $20 million to its (impressively) grand total of $147 million. Third place went to another returnee: Sony's The Benchwarmers fell 49% to snag $10 million in its second weekend, giving it a total haul of about $36 million.
Disney's unkindly-reviewed The Wild debuted in 4th place, pulling in just under $10 million from 2,800 theaters, while the dance-hall drama Take the Lead took the fifth spot with $6.7 million (and a $22.5 million total).
Next week's wide releases look to be Universal's satire American Dreamz, Fox's Secret Service thriller The Sentinel, and Sony's horror flick / video game adaptation Silent Hill.
