Box Office Breakdown: Hudson and McConaughey Strike Gold

Fool's Gold

, the latest joint venture for Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, debuted at the top of the charts this weekend with $21 million.  (When that total is worthy of a first place finish, you know times were slow.)  This marks the second time the pair opened in the $20 million dollar range; 2003’s How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days started at $23.8 million.

was the only other new entry in this weekend’s Top Ten.  The Martin Lawrence comedy grossed $16 million over the three days pushing Hannah Montana into third place.  The 3-D concert, though, had the stronger per screen average ($14,987).

Meanwhile, a weak per theater take is what placed Paris Hilton’s The Hottie & The Nottie way, way, way down the list.  The film averaged only $250 and found itself in 59th place.  (I didn’t even know there were that many movies open out there.)  By comparison, In Bruges - this week’s #25 - averaged $16,330.  That number beat out everyone…including Hannah Montana.
