Fools Gold Hits The Jackpot At U.s. Box Office

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY and KATE HUDSON's new movie FOOLS GOLD has shot to the top of the U.S. box office, taking $22 million (GBP11 million) over three days. The second outing for the pair - following 2003's How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days - has shocked studio bosses at Warner Brothers, who have admitted the takings exceeded their estimates by $4 million (GBP2 million). New at number two is Martin Lawrence comedy Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins with $17.1 million (GBP8.55 million). The Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert dropped to number three, taking $10.5 million (GBP5.25 million) - with a huge $53.4 million (GBP26.7 million) earnings so far. Jessica Alba's horror film The Eye slipped two places to number four in its second week, taking $6.6 million (GBP3.3 million). Oscar-hopeful Juno tied with Katherine Heigl's 27 Dresses, both taking $5.7 million (GBP2.85 million) each.
