Weekend Estimates: Lakeview Terrace High Point in Ordinary Weekend

September 21st, 2008

The Fall Season is very much in full swing now. Three of the four new releases opened with less than $10 million, and total ticket sales look headed for less than $100 million. The one bright spot was Lakeview Terrace, which opened with a decent $15.6 million, according to Sony's Sunday estimate. Burn After Reading fell 40% in its second week to finish in second place with $11.3 million.

My Best Friend's Girl was the best of the rest among the openers. It managed a soft $8.3 million. Igor pulled in $8 million -- not much, but it might yet prove to be good counter-programming in a slow time of year for family films. Finally, Ghost Town picked up $5.2 million from 1,505 theaters, and will probably fade fairly quickly, in spite of good word of mouth.
