'Disturbia' tops slow frame as 'Spidey 3' looms

30 April 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The North American boxoffice appeared to be marking time during the weekend as if waiting for Friday's expected blowout, when Sony Pictures' Spider-Man 3 comes knocking. None of a weak array of new arrivals managed to break through the $10 million barrier, so the teen thriller Disturbia remained king of the hill for the third frame in a row.

Of the newcomers, Buena Vista Pictures' The Invisible, tapping into the same younger audience as Disturbia, ranked second overall with an estimated $7.6 million. The Nicolas Cage sci-fi thriller Next, from Paramount Pictures and Revolution Studios, had to settle for third place and an estimated $7.2 million, while the "Stone Cold" Steve Austin actioner The Condemned, from Lionsgate, entered the list in ninth place with an estimated $4 million. As for the Yari Film Group's Kickin' It Old Skool, starring Jamie Kennedy, it finished outside the top 10 with an estimated $2.8 million.

According to Nielsen EDI, the weekend represented a 23% drop from the comparable weekend last year, when Sony's RV led the pack with $16.4 million. But though the past two weekends have shown steep declines from last year, the spring season, which began March 9 and concludes Thursday, has set record numbers. With $1.231 billion in Hollywood's coffers, this spring is outpacing the record spring of 2004 that took in $1.2 billion. And while that year The Passion of the Christ dominated as the top grosser with $370.3 million, this year the wealth has been spread around a bit more since top grosser 300 has accounted for $207 million.

For Paramount, it was a good news/bad news weekend. The studio's Disturbia, from DreamWorks and Montecito Pictures, ranked first for the third weekend in a row as it fell just 30% while taking in an estimated $9.1 million.

Directed by D.J. Caruso and starring Shia LaBeouf as a housebound teen who suspects a neighbor of murder, the film -- written by Christopher Landon and Carl Ellsworth -- crossed the $50 million mark, hitting an estimated $52.2 million. »
