Sean Kelly

Box Office Thoughts for the Weekend of October 31, 2008

High School Musical 3 was number one for the second week in a row with an estimated gross of $15M and Saw V dropped to third place with an estimated gross of $10.1M (a bit surprising, since last weekend included Halloween).

Zack and Miri Make a Porno opened in second place with an estimated $10.7M, which makes it the second highest opening for a Kevin Smith film (the highest being Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back in 2001).

Probably boosted by Halloween, The Haunting of Molly Hartley opened in fifth place with an estimated $6M.

Finally, after going into wide release, Changeling moved the twentieth to forth with a gross of an estimated $9.4M and RocknRolla moved from thirty-fifth to fourteenth with an estimated $1.8M.

And that's the box office thoughts for this week.
