Ice Cube has often said he "can't be faded," and for the second weekend in a row it looks like he's right. "Barbershop" clipped the competition as it held on to the #1 spot at the box office, according to studio estimates released Sunday. (Click for photos from "Barbershop.).
The ensemble comedy led by Ice Cube and Eve took in $13.3 million for a total of $38.8 million after two weeks in theaters, despite competition from four new widely released films: "The Banger Sisters," "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever," "The Four Feathers" and "Trapped" (see "Kate Hudson Takes On Her Mom, Goldie Hawn, In Theaters This Weekend").
Starring Goldie Hawn and Susan Sarandon as two '70s rock groupies who reunite after years apart, "The Banger Sisters" was the weekend's strongest opening, debuting at #2 with $10.3 million.
Hawn's new movie opened against Kate Hudson's latest flick, with the elder actress' release placing a few spots above her daughter's. "The Four Feathers" came in at #5 with $7.1 million (Click for photos from the premiere), one spot below "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever" which brought in only slightly more.
"Trapped," a kidnapping drama starring Kevin Bacon ("Wild Things"), Charlize Theron ("The Astronaut's Wife"), Stuart Townsend ("Queen of the Damned"), Dakota Fanning ("I Am Sam") and Courtney Love ("The People vs. Larry Flynt"), debuted at #10 with $3.2 million.
The rest of the weekend's top 10 includes "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" at #3 with $10 million ($124.3 million over 23 weeks); Robin Williams' dark indie drama "One Hour Photo" at #6 with $4.7 million ($21.8 million, five weeks); Tom Green and Jason Lee's "Stealing Harvard" tied with Mel Gibson's "Signs" for #7, with each film earning around $3.5 million ($10.8 million in two weeks for "Harvard," $217.9 million over eight weeks for "Signs"); and "Swimfan" at #9 with $3.4 million ($24.4 million, three weeks).
