Narnia, Kong Continue Fight for #1 Film
Kong narrowly beat Narnia last weekend by $1.5m (#s at Box Office Mojo) while newcomers Fun with Dick and Jane and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 made $14 and $9 million respectively.
With a one-week head-start, Narnia has grossed $174,359,262 domestically while Kong has grossed only $128,516,635. Kong has made more overseas, however, with a very large release. It’s made $153,600,000 compared to Narnia’s $78,862,000.
With the holidays continuing, expect big numbers for Narnia again in its fourth weekend. We can expect to see domestic earnings above $200 million by next week.
