Gold? Abs-solutely!

The 3-D film Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert failed to turn the box office topsy-turvy in its second week as it had in its debut a week earlier. Held over for a second week, the concert film, which originally was due to run for one week only, drew an estimated $10.5 million. Still, that worked out to more than $15,000 per theater, far more than the two top films, Fool's Gold and Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins, could claim. Fool's Gold, which was greeted with overwhelmingly poor reviews, many of which suggested that its major attraction was star Matthew McConaughey's abs, took in $23.8 million. As expected, the primary audience turned out to be older women. In an interview with the Associated Press, Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Media By Numbers, attributed the movie's success to "a great marketing campaign, two appealing stars, and reviews be damned." Jenkins, which stars Martin Lawrence, performed about as expected with a take of $17.1 million.

The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Media by Numbers:
1. Fool's Gold, $22 million; 2. Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins, $17.1 million; 3. Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, $10.5 million; 4. The Eye, $6.6 million; 5. Juno, $5.73 million; 6. 27 Dresses, $5.7 million; 7. The Bucket List, $5.3 million; 8. Rambo, $4.1 million; 9. Meet the Spartans, $4.075 million; 10. There Will Be Blood, $4.073 million.
