I can see why the Money would care, but why should the average moviegoer care about box office?

The average moviegoer pays attention to see what everyone else is watching, then they do the same. Sad, really.

i've never noticed before, or maybe i hav and i'm noticing again, how pathetic it is that there is only like one good movie and one OK movie in that whole list. and the rest are really forgettable pieces of shit that no one will refer to in 2 years. what kind of a world is this? the most shocking thing is that a large number of ppl here are so desperate for entertainment (or whatever passes for it these days) that they willingly contribute to the success of utter tripe.

how is humanity not in total disarray?,, oh wait.
under the paving stones.

Shrek 2 Takes Over Holiday Box Office Lead
Source: Reuters Sunday, May 30, 2004

DreamWorks Shrek 2 topped the first three days of the Memorial Day Weekend pulling in an estimated $73.1 million from 4,223 theaters. The animated blockbuster has earned a massive $237.8 million, having raced past the $200 million mark on Saturday, it's 11th day. Only Spider-Man did it faster, taking nine days to do so in 2002. But the $70 million-budgeted Shrek 2 broke Spidey's old record for a second-weekend haul, which was $71.4 million. The next record in the studio's sights is the one for a four-day Memorial Day holiday, which The Lost World: Jurassic Park set in 1997 with a tally of $90.2 million.

20th Century Fox's new The Day After Tomorrow earned $70 million for the three days from 3,425 theaters for second place. The $125 million Roland Emmerich disaster film, starring Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhaal, also collected $82.1 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $152.1 million. Fox said it was the best worldwide opening for a non-sequel, smashing the old mark of $107 million set three weeks ago by the monster thriller Van Helsing.

Warner Bros.' Troy lost 52% of its audience from last weekend, adding $11.5 million for a total of $106.1 million and third place. The Wolfgang Petersen epic film was budgeted at $150 million.

Touchstone's new comedy Raising Helen made an estimated $11.2 million from 2,717 theaters for the fourth spot, while MGM's Soul Plane crashed on take-off with just $5.7 million from 1,566 theaters for the fifth spot.

Universal's sixth-ranked Van Helsing earned $4.9 million in the three days. Its 24-day total rose to $108.8 million and international tally stands at $120.2 million.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Harry Potter Breaks Opening Day Record
Source: ShowBIZ Data

Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban broke the opening day record set by Spider-Man on May 3, 2002. The third installment in the popular "Harry Potter" franchise pulled in an estimated $41.2 million from 3,855 theaters on Friday, surpassing Spidey's take of $39.4 million from 3,615 theaters. It is also on its way to beat Spidey's opening weekend figure of $114.8 million. "Prisoner of Azkaban" carried a production budget of $130 million.

DreamWorks' Shrek 2 managed to hold up well to start its third weekend with $10.4 million on Friday. The $70 million-budgeted animated sequel has made a total of $287 million and has already climbed to #21 on the all-time domestic blockbuster list.

20th Century Fox's The Day After Tomorrow took a tumble making $8.4 million, which is a drop of about 64% from its opening day last Friday. The Roland Emmerich disaster film cost $125 million to produce and has earned $109 million so far.

Touchstone's Raising Helen took the fourth spot for the day, adding $2 million for a total of $19.6 million.

Warner Bros.' Troy made $1.7 million and has collected $114.6 million domestically.

Horror 'Grudge' Reigns at Halloween Box Office

The haunted-house thriller "The Grudge," starring Sarah Michelle Gellar , held on to the No. 1 slot at the North American box office, scaring up $22.4 million in ticket sales during the Halloween weekend, according to studio estimates issued on Sunday.

"Ray," starring Jamie Foxx in a much-praised turn as the late "Genius of Soul" Ray Charles, hit the road at No. 2 with $20.1 million in its first weekend, while the low-budget thriller "Saw" made the cut at No. 3 with $17.4 million.

Nicole Kidman's new movie, "Birth," was stillborn, opening at No. 11 with $1.7 million. The $20 million supernatural drama has won notoriety for a bathtub scene involving Kidman and a 10-year-old boy who claims to be her dead husband.
 
Kidman is the latest Oscar-winning actress to have a tough time at the box office this year, following Halle Berry ("Catwoman"), Charlize Theron ("Head in the Clouds"), and Gwyneth Paltrow ("Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow").

Rounding out the top five, the maritime cartoon "Shark Tale" was at No. 4 with $8.0 million, followed by the Jennifer Lopez -Richard Gere romance "Shall We Dance?" with $6.3 million. Both were down two places, and their respective totals rose to $147.4 million and $33.9 million.

Overall sales for the top 12 films improved by almost three percent to $92.8 million from the year-ago weekend, according to tracking firm Exhibitor Relations. But the tally was five percent down from last weekend, when "The Grudge" shocked everyone by opening with $39.1 million.

CONSERVATIVE PROJECTIONS

After 10 days, "The Grudge" has sold $71.3 million worth of tickets and is expected to surpass the $90 million mark, according to conservative projections from the film's distributor, Sony Corp 's Columbia Pictures.

"The Grudge," director Takashi Shimizu's $10 million remake of Japanese film "Jo-On," surprised again in its second round by losing only 43 percent of its audience. Many observers had expected it to slide by at least 50 percent, paving the way for "Ray" to open at No. 1. But Halloween festivities and its user-friendly PG-13 rating proved otherwise.

"Ray" took 15 years for its director, Taylor Hackford, to bring to the big screen thanks to apathy among Hollywood studios. Universal Pictures, a unit of General Electric Co. -controlled NBC Universal, picked up the completed film earlier this year after Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz footed the estimated $30 million budget himself.

Two-thirds of the audience was aged over 30, and 59 percent was black, Universal said. Exit polls showed that 99 percent of viewers rated the movie "very good" or "excellent," the studio added. Additionally, the "definite recommend" score was in the 90 percent range, against a norm in the 50 percent range, indicating that word-of-mouth will keep the film in theaters through awards season.

Foxx has generated a lot of early Oscar buzz for his accurate portrayal of the blind pianist, who saw the film shortly before he died in June of liver disease.

"Saw," an R-rated chiller starring Cary Elwes and co-writer Leigh Whannell in a limb-hacking dilemma, ranks behind "Fahrenheit 9/11" ($23.9 million) as the second-best opener in the history of its distributor, Lions Gate Films. The studio is a unit of Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.
