Welcome back. We have assembled here for fnord purposes that we cannot speak, lest the tin foil hats we wear malfunction and cause our words to be overheard. Therefore, I shall point you to the Podcast.

That’s right, kids, that means it’s time for another session of Monday Morning Box Office Quarterbacking. Make sure you follow along at Box Office Mojo.
As for Pirates and Superman, we cover that in the podcast, really. But I’ll just say this here: LMAO. Now, if you want some other commentary on Hollywood and their hit-and-miss love affair with blockbusters, check out Chris Anderson’s Long Tail.
Devil Wears Prada dropped less than fifty percent and was making more per screen than Superman, and will break even by next weekend. Good on Fox for smart planning.
Click has a ways to go before it breaks even, though it broke $100 million. Again, it’s an Adam Sandler film. When he can no longer afford to keep Rob Schneider employed, then you should worry.
Cars will break even over the next two weeks. Has anyone been to EPCOT and seen if they’ve changed the NASCAR ride at all to tie in with this?
Nacho Libre is making profit now, as I said last week. I’m still wondering how it will play south of here, honestly. And I’m terrified at how many Halloween costume ideas it’s spawned.
Lake House and Fast and the Furious 3 are still on the top ten because sometimes the movies above them sell out.
Waist Deep is no doubt turning a profit because it was done on the cheap as mentioned before. It’s also still doing decent per screen takes for the bottom five.
The Break-Up–finally with #10 we come to something that’s turning a good profit. With everything else we’re still waiting for it to build up money in the black or the stuff has a long way to go. So take that for whatever it’s worth.
Join us next time for when we’ll discuss Pirates 2 again, since I doubt anything will rise up to challenge it.
Special thanks to Exit Mindbomb for letting me use “Godzilla Will Rule You” from their album Happy Accident for my new WGO music. Check them out on MySpace here and I tried to link up as many songs as I could here.
