Dreamgirls fell 40% during the second weekend of its road tour, but it still earned an incredible $228,000 in three theaters for an average of $75,879.
There were three other films to crack $10,000, all of them new releases.
Leading this pack was Letters from Iwo Jima with just under $90,000 in 5 theaters for an average of $17,819.
This is a better start than expected after the disappointing run by Flags of Our Fathers and if it earns a few more nominations, it could expand wide later on.
Another Oscar hopeful, The Painted Veil, placed third with an average of $12,771. Finally there was Venus, which started its run with $35,000 in 3 theaters for an average of $11,868.

An abridged list with just the sites for movies opening this week, and maybe one or two others. Because it is such a short list, there's no real strong choice for Weekly Website Award. Rocky Balboa
- Official Site
comes the closest, but it doesn't quite get there.

We are again flooded with limited releases this week, most of which were obviously made with Oscar glory in mind. That said, only a few will earn any nominations and none here are likely to be the big winner on Oscar night, but there are still more than a enough to satisfy even the most dedicated cinemaphile.
