Invincible Is -- For Second Week

Disney's football flick Invincible scored another touchdown over the Labor Day weekend, staying well ahead of its rivals for the second week in a row. According to final figures released by Exhibitor Relations Tuesday, the Mark Wahlberg starrer earned $15.4 million over the four days, putting its two-week gross at $38.1 million. Lionsgate's Crank premiered with $12.9 million, just ahead of Warner Bros.' The Wicker Man, starring Nicolas Cage, which earned $11.7 million. Another new film, the basketball-themed Crossover, failed even to make the top ten, fouling out with just $4.4 million. Fox Searchlight, however, continued to beam over the success of the indie Little Miss Sunshine, which raked in $9.6 million -- up 3 percent over the previous week. Also impressing was The Illusionist, which took fifth place with $8.1 million despite playing in only 971 theaters. It produced the weekend's highest per-screen average among the top 10 -- $8,362.
