We’re running out of ways to say this.
Seven weeks on release and still showing no signs of waning,
ruled the box office again this weekend, grabbing another $30m from American cinema-goers.
It’s now just a tiny gasp behind
’s mammoth taking (when adjusted for inflation), and its biggest competition this week came from Mel Gibson’s newest revenge thriller,
Edge of Darkness
. Which, really, presented hardly any competition at all, as the Aussie only took a measly $17m in comparison.
Staggering into third place was Kristen Bell’s romantic comedy
When in Rome
, which managed to scrape together $12m – still better than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s
, which gathered a measly $10m from its audience.
Filling out the top five,
Book of Eli
continues to struggle to hit the $100m mark on its third week of release, stalling at a $74m total thus far.
And the rest of the top ten? Nothing to write home about, either.
continued to fly under the radar with a pitiful $6m, while
The Lovely Bones
Alvin and the Chipmunks
all added about $4m to their honey jars.
