"Big Momma" Gets a Big Weekend
Clocking in at second place, with a surprisingly strong $14 million haul from 2,000 theaters, was the British family comedy "Nanny McPhee," starring Emma Thompson. Third place went to last week's #1 winner, the vampire vs. werwolf thriller "Underworld: Evolution," which added an additional $11 million to its $44 million coffin.
Another new arrival, the Disney military boxing drama romance amalgam "Annapolis," debuted in 1,600 theaters with a haul of $7.7 million, while the top five was rounded out by "Hoodwinked," the animated comedy that added another $7.3 million to its $37 million goodie basket.
Next Friday sees the release of two new studio flicks: Focus Features' rom-com "Something New" (1,100 theaters) and Screen Gems' horror remake "When a Stranger Calls" (2,600 theaters).
