No surprises there. What else are people with dispoable dollars gonna go see on Friday the 13th but a horror sequel? (Well, actually, I was happily watching 'Battlestar Galactica' on SciFi, but then again, I'm a) not a teenager anymore and b) definitely not wasting money on a babysitter to see horror schlock) . Even with 'The Grudge 2' on top, we're really impressed 'The Departed' stayed on top of its game, bringing its two-week total to more than $56 million. Without a doubt, the universally adored (well, by us, anyway) mob drama should easily become Scorsese's biggest movie. As for 'The Marine,' which debuted with $7 million for the No. 6 spot, we were only $750,000 off with our top-5 prediction. John Cena apparently has just enough fans to make sure his revenge flick didn't open out of the top 10.
Oh yeah, and the presidential Robin Williams comedy 'Man of the Year' (wait, is it a comedy or a thriller? I have no idea) had a decent, third-place finish. It was bound to do well, considering there aren't many other non-animated comedies around at the moment. And it looks like parents, finding nothing else even remotely kid friendly in theaters, pushed 'Open Season' to another solid weekend.
Well, that's it folks. Until next week!
