'National Treasure' Wins Christmas Weekend Box Office

December 26, 2007


UPDATE 2: Now shows proper numbers and standings!

1. National Treasure: Book of Secrets - With a holiday haul of $65.4 million, Jerry Bruckheimer is probably already working on National Treasure: The Search for Uncle Sam's Tomb.

2. I Am Legend - Like Tom Hanks in Cast Away, another $47.7 million proves Will Smith can support an entire film with his star power and skilled acting. Provided that he also has hundreds of CGI somethings to fight.

3. Alvin and the Chipmunks - $38.6 million, or enough to buy Alvin over 20 million hula hoops.

4. Charlie Wilson's War - Why wouldn't this war-themed comedic drama take in $15.9 million? With Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in lead roles, this is the hottest cast of seven years ago.

5. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street - $13.6 million is the biggest opening ever for a film with an enema in the title.

6. P.S. I Love You - Against some huge holiday competition, P.S. still managed to scrap up $10 million over the extended weekend. Expect a popularity surge in post-mortem event planning.

UPDATE: I'm now seeing some discrepancy in this list, considering Alvin and the Chipmunks reportedly made almost $30 million over the three-day weekend alone. I'll see what I can figure out about this.
