Bond Loses To Someone Else In A Tuxedo - Week 3

Happy Feet
Casino Royale
The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause
Flushed Away
In a match-up of costly Holiday Movie films there is some good news for a change… they both made bank. For only the second time in box-office history two films opened with over $40 million.

Taking top honors though were those birds from the bottom of the world. Happy Feet shuffled its way to $41.5 million over its first three days. Luckily with that kind of money they can afford to dub-over Nicole Kidman's singing parts with someone who can actually sing in the DVD release. Every Keith Urban fan in the world is fearing the day she finds her way into the studio and they start singing love duets on every album like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Granted, the music videos would look great on mute though.

Being blond and Bond didn't hurt the 21st installment of the legendary 007 series. Daniel Craig's first outing in Casino Royale was the second largest in franchise history with $40.1 million. The film even delivered some great stunt/action scenes, a typically mediocre theme song that grows on you regardless, and lines of dialogue that didn't make you instantly cringe. I prefer the delayed cringe myself, so I appreciated the change.

As for the "other" film, Let's Go To Prison, let's just say it didn't do worse than Harsh Times. A $2.2 million opening isn't worth a life sentence, however there's a lot of cigarettes you can buy with that.

Now that some real blockbusters opened, how did that affect the rest of the films? They all pretty much fell in line. Borat, Santa Clause 3, and Flushed Away all dropped around 50% as they begin the tail-end of their theatrical careers.

The Top Five if Today was MLK Day…

#1. Borat - $90.8 million
#2. Santa Clause 3 - $51.7 million
#3. Flushed Away - $48.6 million
#4. Happy Feet - $41.5 million
#5. Casino Royale - $40.8 million
