So, because people didn't give a crap about the new films, Disturbia held well (and so did Fracture all things), and The Invisible did better than I thought it would. But, but, it probably won't hit $20 million domestic. Neither will Next, and it's likely that The Condemned and Kickin' it Old Skool won't make 10 million. Disturbia should get (as I said when it opened) to around 60 or 70, but it's hard to say if it will get a bump or get totally decimated by Spider-Man 3. There's a theory of "Spill and Fill" (audiences unable to see the film they want to go to something else) with huge hits, but with the internet era, I don't think that happens as much as it used to.

The expansion of Hot Fuzz meant that the film took only a slight dip in BO, which means a less than 20% drop. Awesome. Good job, you guys. Keep going!

People don't give a shit about Jamie Kennedy! Who knew? I got love, so don't put me in Hecklers 2: The Heckle Nation, JK. Man, am I hung-over, so I'm going to let these numbers speak for themselves, and keep watching The Wire Season 2.
