‘Enchanted’ still has #1 charm

Disney film on top after posting $4.9 million Friday

Disney’s “Enchanted” continued to serenade auds for the top spot at the Friday box office, grossing $4.9 million from 3,730 theaters.

Despite a 66% drop in its daily haul from last Friday, the PG-rated princess pic is expected to hold its crown over the weekend.  In its first 10 days at the B.O., “Enchanted” has bewitched $58.5 million.

While the post-Thanksgiving frame is notorious for being slow, many previous weekend holdovers saw Friday-to-Friday drops that were steeper than 50%.

In a close race for second, Paramount/Shangri-La Entertainment’s 3-D animated epic “Beowulf” dazzled $2.5 million off 3,249 hardtops, registering a 62% decline and a current cume of $63.2 million. 

In third, Sony-Screen Gems’ “This Christmas” drank up $2.4 million at 1,858 parties, down 68%, for a cume to date of $31 million.

This weekend’s only wide release, the MGM distributed Dimension thriller “Awake” stirred $2.2 million off 2,002 engagements for fourth place.

In fifth, Fox’s “Hitman” counted $1.9 million from 2,468 sites, a 64% decline, and a ten day stash of $26.3 million.

Like a rolling stone, Weinstein Co.’s Bob Dylan rumination “I’m Not There” entertained a hearty $146,000 from 138 arthouses.  Though down 47% from last Friday, the Todd Haynes pic has accumulated $1.3 million in the midst of its second weekend.

Helmer Tamara Jenkins’ sophomore outing “The Savages,” distributed by Fox Searchlight, touted the highest per theater average yesterday with $11,000 or $44,000 from four hardtops.  Since its Wednesday bow, “Savages” has grossed $77,000.

Miramax’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” rang up Friday’s second highest screen average, grossing $7,000 from three theaters in New York and Los Angeles or $21,000.
