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.
And after picking up seven Oscar nominations, including best picture, Warner Bros. 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.
