Ghost Rider managed to hold on to the top spot at the box office this weekend … which, ironically, was also Oscar weekend. The movie brought in an estimated $19.7 million, after debuting last week with $44 million over President‘s Day weekend, the biggest opening ever for that holiday. In total, Ghost Rider has banked $78.7 million.
Now seems like a good time to remind everyone that Blog@ Go Team Blaze! Movie Review Contest entries are due today.
Coming in second, third and fourth were three movies that opened this weekend — The Number 23, Bridge to Terabithia and Reno 911!: Miami. Norbit rounded out the top five.
In other movie news, I think I might have taken the office Oscar pool. Out of the 10 categories we had to choose, I think I only missed two … and I’m pretty sure no one else at the office chose Melissa Etheridge and that I’m probably the only person who went with Alan Arkin over Eddie Murphy. I guess I’ll know later today.
