Box Office Guru Wrapup: "300" Reigns Again as Box Office King

Summary

Three new competitors were no match this weekend for the mighty action epic "300," which easily defended its box office crown to rule North American theaters for a second straight time. Sandra Bullock reached a new career high with the thriller "Premonition," which debuted in third place while the horror film "Dead Silence" and the Chris Rock comedy "I Think I Love My Wife" opened in the top five with mixed results. "300" grossed as much as all three new releases combined. Back to Article

[b]Ok, now give Snyder $500 million to do watchmen[/b]
I need a really good Watchmen, give Zack a big sack of Money so I get some Crazy Dr. Manhattan scenes, fool! The man proved himself, now let him make a really over-bloated even more CGI-laden action epic. Or do a sequel to 300, either way...

I'm happy to see 300 still raking in the money. I saw Wild Hogs this weekend and thought it was definitely better than the critics have been saying, it was just a fun time at the movies not the greatest movie ever which is just fine(B).

I know, huh? I reallly liked Zodiac, and i saw it at the latest showing at 11:30PM, and STILL enjoyed it! I'll bet this movie will have a better run on DVD, it seems that it was mostly the running time that killed its streak. When people are able to pause it to run to take a leak and grab some nachos and refill their Jack and Coke, people will probably be more likely to enjoy it.

Totally agreed. Why aren't more people seeing this great movie? =(

Nice to see 300 still making a good sizeable amount. But heres hoping more people see Zodiac when it comes out on DvD. It really is a good movie.
