Final Box Office Results Worse Than Feared

Final figures for the weekend box office turned out to be even weaker than Sunday's estimates -- which themselves were well below analysts' forecasts. The two top films, Fox's The Chronicles of Narnia The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Sony/Columbia's The Tourist each came in around a half million dollars below estimates. However, two films in limited release impressed. Playing in just four theaters, Paramount's The Fighter was the per-screen champ as it earned $300,010 in 4 theaters, or $75,003 per theater. (It is due to open wide next weekend.) Playing in just 90 theaters, Fox Searchlight's Black Swan earned $3,305,368 or $36,726 per theater, putting in the top ten list at No. 6. Overall, the box office was down nearly 6 percent from the comparable week a year ago.

The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Box Office Mojo (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date) 1. The Chronicles of Narnia The Voyage of the Dawn Treaders, 20th Century Fox, $24,005,069, (New); 2. The Tourist, Sony, $16,472,458, (New); 3. Tangled, Disney, $14,331,687, 3 Wks. ($115,395,560); 4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 , Warner Bros., $8,484,316, 4 Wks. ($257,672,721); 5. Unstoppable, 20th Century Fox, $3,705,966, 5 Wks. ($74,227,908); 6. Black Swan, Fox Searchlight, $3,305,368, 2 Wks. ($5,584,542); 7. Burlesque , Sony, $3,166,613, 3 Wks. ($32,540,780); 8. Love & Other Drugs , 20th Century Fox, $2,981,509, 3 Wks. (New); 9.
