No debuts this week!!
Sorry, gotta keep it short again this week, but why not? No debuts at the box office this week! What, Transylmania not doing well in regional markets, like, the directors' home town? Well, 1 to 4 stayed the same, but after that it's complicated... see how I did that? Lemme tell ya something: The Blind Side is the little movie that could! It rises from 6th to 5th, clinging to the box office for the 7th week in a row. It's the movie that Precious shoulda been, but just wait til the Golden Globes and the Oscars, baby. Up in the Air switches places with Blind Side, slipping to #6. Princess / Frog and Invictus stay constant, while Nine and Morgans trade places. Nine is finally where it belongs! At #9. As for Did You Hear about the Morgans, well, it's headed to a place even more hidden than the Witness Protection Program: your local video shelf, and then to the pawn shop where it will languish forever in the locked Blu-Ray case, doomed to be passed over for more interesting fare like Zohan and that direct-to-video Fantastic 4 sequel... sorry, I made that one up. But who would be in that cast? Probably James Belushi as The Thing and Alyssa Milano taking the Jessica Alba role. I gotta go.
