Box Office Report 08.15

Ricky Bobby dared to answer the call and stepped up to retain his top spot at the box office, narrowly out grossing the flamboyantly shitty looking dance off flick with a second week haul of $22.1 million, inching it ever closer to the $100 million mark.

As those two flicks battled it out for the teen demographic World Trade Center quietly claimed third spot with $18.5 million to ramp up a 5-day total of $26.5 million. Not exactly drawing in swarms of people, which is understandable, given the feelings it would evoke in people who had to watch that unfold that dreadful day.

The two remaining releases for the week, Pulse and Zoom opened further down the charts at #5 and 9, sure to be a blip on the radar as common sense slowly takes hold of the viewing public and they are forced down the ranks, and good riddance.

That's pretty much all there is to report this week regarding the box office, August not being the prime spot for studios big prospects that shouldn't surprise anybody. Next week we’ll finally see just how far pandering to the internet crowds mob mentality will get you when Ricky Bobby has to outrace Snakes……on a Plane.
