In case anyone’s curious …

Box Office Mojo reports that Apocalypto was #1 yesterday with an estimated $4,950,000, and The Nativity Story was #8 with $1,450,000. Doesn’t look like the film has legs, does it?

    Gulp!

    That said, if Apocalypto only pulled in $4.9m at #1 then it was obvisouly a poor weekend. It will be interesting to see what happens next weekend, and will cinemas start axing it now?

    Uh, Peter, boxofficemojo is listing Apocalypto at 14.something mill. for its first weekend. Either the initial guesstimators were way off or you need to read more carefully 😉
