'Stomp' Still Scores At Us Box Office

Dance movie STOMP THE YARD held on to the top spot at the US box office for the second week in a row, taking $13.3 million (GBP6.8 million). The film narrowly beat BEN STILLER's family comedy NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM, which continued to perform well with $13 million (GBP6.7 million) to maintain second place for the second weekend in a row. Musical extravaganza DREAMGIRLS moved up one spot to third with $8.7 million (GBP4.5 million), after getting a boost from JENNIFER HUDSON's Best Supporting Actress win at the Golden Globe Awards last week (15JAN07). The only film to open nationwide this weekend, the horror movie THE HITCHER, had a disappointing fourth place opening with only $8.2 million (GBP4.2 million). THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND was the biggest beneficiary of the post-Golden Globe buzz, expanding from four theaters to 495 and taking in an estimated $1.8 million (GBP923,000). FOREST WHITAKER won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor In A Drama for his portrayal of Ugandan dictator IDI AMIN in the film and is considered a favourite for an Academy Award.
