Box Office Breakdown:  Silver Surfer Scores the Gold

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories:

Silver Surfer

Like Ocean’s Thirteen, critics rated Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer better than its predecessor.  And like Ocean’s, Fantastic found its way on top of the ever-revolving box office heap.  With help from a more family-friendly rating (down from PG-13 to a PG), the superhero clan raked in $2 million more in its opening weekend than its 2005 turnout.

But it takes more than just a PG to win viewers over—it apparently takes Jessica Alba in a skin-tight outfit…and the prim and proper Nancy Drew had to learn that the hard way.  The latest incarnation of the beloved character only placed 7th despite the numerous times Julia Roberts’ name had been dropped these past few weeks.  BTW—I feel incredibly bad that daddy Eric Roberts has been continuously trumped by his more famous sister.  Emma is HIS daughter after all.

Here’s how the rest of the weekend fared:

1. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Fox, $58,051,684
2. Ocean’s Thirteen, Warner Bros, $19,724,405
3. Knocked Up, Universal, $14,069,880
4. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Disney, $12,411,786
5. Surf’s Up, Sony, $9,254,793
6. Shrek the Third,  DreamWorks Animation-Paramount, $9,003,044
7. Nancy Drew, Warner Bros., $6,832,318
8. Hostel: Part II, Lionsgate, $3,026,131
9. Mr. Brooks, MGM, $2,902,024
10. Spider-Man 3,  Sony, $2,505,151
