Box Office Slumps…Again

With only one new film in wide release, it was another slow weekend at U.S. movie theaters. Box office totals slumped even lower than last week, making this weekend a 52-week low. However, two limited release films made a good showing at the box office this weekend. Anime thriller VAMPIRE HUNTER D: BLOODLUST, debuting in just six theaters, managed to bring in a healthy $4,255 per screen. The Armegeddon-themed MEGIDDO: OMEGA CODE 2, with visual effects by Computercafe and Cinesite, did well in limited release as well, debuting in thirteenth place with $1.6M from 314 theaters. THE MUSKETEER, with primary visual effects by Das Werk, slipped another spot, adding $3.5M for $22.7M and fourth place. The teen horror flick JEEPERS CREEPERS, with primary visual effects by E=MC2 and Max Ink Cafe LLC, dropped two spots to ninth with $2.8M and $33.6M total. Top ten mainstay RUSH HOUR 2, with primary visual effects by Cinesite, has added another $3.5M to its $215.6M total, and the comedy RAT RACE, with animated opening titles by Wild Brain, has earned $2.9M in its sixth weekend bringing its gross to $51.5M.
