Thoughts:
This week looks pretty much like last weeks except for a few minor differences. Fox's Marley & Me continues to perform well and has already passed the $100 million mark. This was a film that Fox badly needed, its just a shame that the studio couldn't get more films like this earlier on in the summer. I can see Marley & Me going on to make more than $150 million during its theatrical run. Disney's Bedtime Stories came in second with about $20 million. The Adam Sandler flick should finish at $125 million.

David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button brought in about $18 million for a total of $79 million. The $150 million budgeted film is going to have a tough time matching its high budget, but I can see the film grossing more than $120 million. Valkyrie scored the 4th spot with $14 million with a total of $60 million. The Tom Cruise Hitler flick should be able to crack the $80 million spot with a chance at $90 million. The film was great and I think more people should check it out. Jim Carrey's Yes Man took in $13 million this week and should finish at $100 million after its initial run. Doubt climbed up one spot and brought in another $5 million for a total of $18 million.

Director Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire grossed an impressive $4 million and made the top 10 this week. The Oscar buzzed flick is still in only 600 theaters and is still continuing to do business.

I like Marley & Me and I'm really glad that it doing so good in the box office. Being the number one film in the end of the 08 also as the opener of 09 is terrific like the producer said.
