Here’s a late update for the last box office weekend in 2008! This weekend was great for debuts, with four of the five movies in the top five premiering during the previous week!
Marley and Me debuted with a smashing $36.4 million, and Bedtime Stories, featuring Adam Sandler in his first Disney film, debuted in second place with a respectable $27.5 million.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button lands in third with $26.9 million in earnings, a very close finish to second place.
Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise debuts in fourth place at $21 million, while Jim Carrey’s performance in Yes Man earns $16.7 million and places fifth in its third week of screening.
These big totals don’t seem to show a recession, do they? 😉
