‘Company’ holds onto exclusive B.O. crown

Sony Pictures Classics’ “In the Company of Men” rebuffed overtures from October’s “Career Girls” to remain on top of the exclusives roster for the second week.

Neil LaBute’s controversial tale of the male id run amok in the boardroom and the bedroom captured $91,800 in five temporary assignments on both coasts.

Moving in on “Company” was “Career Girls,” the latest film from “Secrets & Lies” helmer Mike Leigh. The story of two longtime British friends, “Girls” brought home $79,509 to five flats in New York and L.A. in its first outing.

Miramax’s “Shall We Dance?” continued to show legs in its fifth week. Masayuki Suo’s charmer about a middle-aged Japanese businessman who takes dance lessons on the sly partnered with $64,680 in five ballrooms on both coasts.

Newcomers included Asphalt Films’ “Soul in the Hole,” a streetwise tale about hoops that sank $10,758 in three Gotham baskets during its opening weekend.
