WB reaped the rewards of having the balls to release a movie we’ve all already seen this week, as Zac Efron’s 17 Again topped the box office with $24 million. I thought it’d be a Freaky Friday before a body-swap comedy topped the box office again, but you know what they say: Like Father Like Son. Wait, did that last sentence make sense? Or Vice Versa?
Elsewhere, Crowe/Affleck joint State of Play locked up number two, Hannah Montana dropped to four, Crank High Voltage debuted a disappointing sixth with a take four million less than the original, I Love You, Man continued to earn in the ninth spot in its fifth week out, and Dragonball is a certified bomb, dropping out of the top ten in only its second week. It looked so brilliant, I just don’t understand it.
Overall, revenue was up 17% and attendance up 16% over last year, despite the supposedly weak economy. Thanks, Zac Efron, Miley Cyrus, and Vin Diesel! I guess it’s true what they say: crap rules everything around me, dolla dolla bill, y’all. (full top ten after the jump):
