We now have the final estimates in for the entire President’s Day Weekend, and as we reported earlier Jumper is the number one movie for the four-day period including the holiday Monday, taking in $31 million dollars according to estimates. The Spiderwick Chronicles took in an estimated $24 million.
Ironically Jumper won the box office title despite being on fewer screens. The Spiderwick Chronicles had better reviews and was in 3847 theaters compared to 3428 for Jumper. Yet Jumper still won. I don’t get it, either.
The results of the four-day weekend are courtesy of Box Office Mojo:
1 Jumper Fox $31,700,000
2 The Spiderwick Chronicles Par. $24,466,000
3 Step Up 2 the Streets BV $21,516,000
4 Fool’s Gold WB $15,020,000
5 Definitely, Maybe Uni. $11,406,000
6 Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins Uni. $10,431,000
7 Juno FoxS $5,500,000
8 The Bucket List WB $4,625,000
9 Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour BV $3,890,000
10 27 Dresses Fox $3,790,000
For the five day period including Valentine’s Day, Jumper finishes with $38 million, Spiderwick with 26.7 million, Step Up 2 the Streets with $28 million and Definitely, Maybe $14 million. By the way, Juno is now closing in on an overall take of $125 million.
No President’s Day holiday records were set this weekend. Last year, Ghost Rider set the record for the holiday, opening to $52 million. No one came close to matching that this year.
That’s all for now! See you later this week for more here at The Reject Report.
