B.O. Derby

Another fantastic weekend for Pirates springs the swashbucklers into 1st place for the year, with a target for the elusive 400 million dollar milestone. Little Man and You, Me, and Dupree both pulled in about $20 mil, not earth shattering, but more than they deserved. In the rankings, Cars has vroomed past Da Vinci, with its eyes on passing up X-Men as well in the next couple of weeks. If Cars manages that feat, this would be one helluva year for Disney. Not fairing as well was the Man of Steel inching his way toward that coveted $200 million mark. Ol' Supes would have a decent shot at that goal if new films didn't keep opening. This upcoming weekend there will be 4 big releases: First, from the folks that made The Polar Express, Monster House. Next, one I plan to see and also a pick to be in the top 9 of the summer, M Night's Lady in the Water. Also, unnecessary sequel Clerks II. And lastly, the horrible looking My Super Ex-Girlfriend.


Current Rankings:


9) The Break-Up - $116,095,220
8) Click - $119,963,211
7) Mission: Impossible III - $133,382,309
6) Over the Hedge - $150,898,980
5) Superman Returns - $164,316,103

2) X-Men: The Last Stand - $232,329,982
1) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - $258,364,766

Superman Returns still needs $35,683,897 to reach $200 Million
