A ‘Hoodwinked’ high

MLK matinees fuel a B.O. win for toon

Weinstein Co. CG toon “Hoodwinked” skipped ahead of the competition Monday thanks to holiday matinees, just barely stealing the No. 1 spot for the four-day holiday weekend with $16.6 million vs. $16.5 million for Disney’s “Glory Road,” which had a slight lead as of Sunday.

Just a bit behind them both in third place was Paramount’s Queen Latifah comedy “Last Holiday,” which grossed $15.7 million.

Other films remained in the same positions on the box office chart based on three-day estimates (Daily Variety, Jan. 16). Frame’s other debut, Fox’s “Tristan & Isolde,” was in eighth place with $7.9 million over four days.

Openers appealed to somewhat different auds, with “Hoodwinked” drawing in families, “Glory Road” getting a broad mix of adults, “Last Holiday” appealing primarily to women and African-Americans and “Tristan & Isolde” seeing mainly teenage girls.

Steven Spielberg’s historical drama “Munich” fell out of the top 10 in only its second wide week, grossing $6.1 million over four days. Cume is $34 million.

Overall frame was down 7% from a year ago, when the Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend’s top four films, “Coach Carter,” “Meet the Fockers,” “Racing Stripes” and “In Good Company,” all grossed more than “Hoodwinked.”

The rest of the top 10:

  • “Chronicles of Narnia” at No. 4 with $12.2 million. Disney/Walden adaptation has cumed a lion-sized $263.4 million.

  • Lionsgate horror pic “Hostel” came in fifth, grossing $11.7 million. Cume is $36.8 million after two weeks.

  • Sony’s “Fun With Dick and Jane” continues to show very good legs, grossing $10.3 million at No. 6. Cume is $94.2 million.

  • Universal tentpole “King Kong” took in $9.2 million at No. 7, upping cume to $204.7 million.

  • “Brokeback Mountain” grossed $7.1 million for Focus as it expanded to a number of small cities, pushing its print count to 683. Cume is $32.1 million.

  • Fox sequel “Cheaper by the Dozen 2” rounded out the top 10, grossing $6.8 million and pushing cume to $74.6 million.
