Box office molded by ‘Gromit’

While the box office results produced by the five new wide releases this weekend were short of spectacular, the fall season continued its encouraging start. DreamWorks Animation’s claymation title “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” won the weekend with a $16.1 million debut at 3,645 theaters. While the results are much more modest than those of previous DreamWorks fall titles, “Were-Rabbit” finished within the range of expectations going into the weekend. It was followed by Walt Disney’s durable holdover, the Jodie Foster thriller “Flightplan,” which rang up $10.8 million in its third weekend, off just 27% for the frame. Its total is now $60.9 million. Other new wide releases turned in mostly modest performances. In the No. 3 position was 20th Century Fox’s “In Her Shoes” with $10 million from 3,570. “Two for the Money,” a Morgan Creek film that Universal released in 2,391, followed at No. 4 with $8.9 million for the three-day span. Opening a bit stronger than expected at No. 5 was Sony and Screen Gems’ “The Gospel,” which grossed $8 million from a modest 969-engagement run. The weekend’s final new wide movie, Lions Gate’s “Waiting…,” started off with $5.7 million from 1,652, which ranked it No. 7 for the frame.
