Moviegoers Dig Gold


It may have received some of the worst reviews of the year, but Warner Bros.' Fool's Gold, starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey wound up with $22 million at the box office over the weekend, according to Media by Numbers. The film beat out the Martin Lawrence comedy Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins from Universal, which opened in second place with $17.1 million. Disney's Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, last weekend's top movie, slipped to third place with $10.5 million but remained tops on a per-theater basis. Overall, the weekend's top 12 films grossed $91.4 million, a fraction less than the $91.8 million recorded for the comparable weekend a year ago.
