‘Monster’ scares up box office

Three successful film openings over the weekend – led by the $24 million bow for New Line’s “Monster-in-Law” – weren’t enough to snap a now 12-week weak streak at the box office. “Monster-in-Law,” which debuted at 3,424 theaters, was a career-best opening for both Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda. Not too far behind was the Will Ferrell family film “Kicking & Screaming” with $20.9 million at 3,455 venues. Also opening strongly was Rogue’s Jet Li actioner “Unleashed,” with $10.6 million from 1,957 locations. Failing to make much of an impact at the box office, Dimension’s thriller “Mindhunters” grossed $2 million from 1,040 engagements, and ranked No. 10. Claiming the No. 4 spot was 20th Century Fox’s “Kingdom of Heaven” with $9.6 million in its second week, down 51%. Holding extremely well in its sophomore session was Lions Gate’s “Crash,” down just 21% with $7.2 million, which ranked fifth.
