Will Over the Hedge outgross Da Vinci?


Tomorrow is a holiday in the U.S., so today’s box-office estimates are even more approximate than usual, but even so, there is something about these figures that gets me wondering.

BoxOfficeMojo.com says The Da Vinci Code dropped 56.5% from last weekend, while the DreamWorks cartoon Over the Hedge — the beneficiary of the so-called “other-cott” — dropped only 29.1%. Thus, whereas The Da Vinci Code made double what Over the Hedge made last week, this week it’s only made a few million more — and if these rates of decline continue, then who knows?

It’s too early to make any grand predictions, but I’ll be keeping my eyes on this for the next few weeks, I think.
