According to The Hollywood Reporter, During an unusually strong weekend at the boxoffice in North America, 20th Century Fox's Hide and Seek, an R-rated psychological thriller starring Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning, easily found the top spot with a sterling debut of about $22 million. Sony's PG-rated family comedy Are We There Yet? starring Ice Cube -- the previous weekend's boxoffice champ -- parked in second with about $17 million, slipping a minuscule 8% from its debut. The 10-day cume is an estimated $39.1 million.

Pictures' third-place Million Dollar Baby knocked out about $11.8 million during its first weekend of wide release in 2,010 theaters, up 1,863 from a week ago. The Clint Eastwood-directed drama, which picked up the DGA Award for best director on Saturday, averaged $5,871 per theater and has grossed $21.1 million to date.Read More
Dakota Fanning is the biggest little girl in the business today. Yeah, I know that sounds funny, but its true. When I got to sit down with her to talk about her latest film, Hide and Seek, a thriller/ horror film with the legendary Robert De Niro, I was blown away by a few things. First of all, this girl is the size of my leg, and not only that, she's got to be the smartest little (almost) 11 year old I've ever talked to. Not only does she have her hands full working with De Niro, but will also be starring with Tom Cruise in the upcoming Steven Spielberg film version of War of the Worlds. This little dynamo was tight lipped about her role in the film, but was a treat to talk to about other stuff. Allow me to introduce you to Dakota Fanning.
Do you scare easily Dakota? Do you like scary movies?Read More
