Shepherd Leads All on the Home Market

April 14th, 2007

The Good Shepherd led a flock of new releases earning $8.66 million. This was only a small, small margin ahead of the second place Pursuit of Happyness, which added $8.48 million to its two-week total of $18.43 million. Happy Feet and Blood Diamond were neck and neck with $6.83 million and $6.21 million respectively. Happy Feet has now made $15.09 million in two weeks while Blood Diamond has made $22.81 million in three. The final film in the top five was Charlotte's Web with an opening week total of $5.68 million.

Black Christmas was the best of the rest in 14th place with $2.39 million while Volver was back in 22nd spot with $1.43 million. For both of these films their debuts were a little lower than expected compared to their theatrical runs.

Leading the way on the sales chart was Charlotte's Web; this was a better result than it managed on the rental charts, but it still barely managed to top Happy Feet's second week of release. (As usual, no numbers were released for either film.) Pursuit of Happyness placed third, ahead of the rental leader, The Good Shepherd. Rounding out the top five was Eragon.

Just missing the top five was Jump In! while the only other new release to chart was Black Christmas in tenth place.
