‘Beverly Hills Chihuahua’ Still Top Dog At Box Office

'Quarantine,' 'Body of Lies' open in top five during slow week for theaters.

The Box-Office Top Five

#1 “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” ($17.5 million)
#2 “Quarantine” ($14.2 million)
#3 “Body of Lies” ($13.1 million)
#4 “Eagle Eye” ($11 million)
#5 “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” ($6.5 million)

Disney’s “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” won the weekend box office for the second-straight week. It made $17.5 million. The talking-dog-starring movie brought its overall total to $52.5 million.

“Quarantine” made $14.2 to come in second place. It’s October; “Quarantine” is a horror movie. Draw your own conclusions.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe‘s “Body of Lies” made only $13.1 million to finish in third place. Director Ridley Scott and DiCaprio will team up again for “Brave New World.”

“Eagle Eye” fell only 37 percent in its third week to finish fourth. With $11 million, the Shia LaBeouf thriller brought its overall total to $70.5 million dollars. It doesn’t look like it will hit $100 million, but should still be considered a success.

Rounding out the top five, “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” made $6.5 million. After two weeks, it’s overall total is $20.8 million.

Several new releases failed to crack the top five. “The Express,” about running back Ernie Davis, made only $4.7 million to come in sixth. Bill Murray ‘s “City of Ember” came in tenth with $3.2 million.

After two weeks, “Religulous” has won the ideological battle against “An American Carol.” In its second week, Bill Maher’s film made more, overtaking the latter in total gross.

Upcoming Releases

Video game adaptation “Max Payne,” starring Mark Wahlberg; “The Secret Life of Bees,” starring Jennifer Hudson; Oliver Stone’s President Bush-mocking “W.” and the very funny “Sex Drive” all open in wide release this week.
