By the Numbers

Weekend box office

January 10, 2006|R. Kinsey Lowe

Lionsgate's Sunday estimates for "Hostel" proved about $500,000 too "aggressive" (as the company described them). When actual numbers for that day were clocked on Monday, writer-director Eli Roth's abattoir adventure's total for the weekend came in at $19.6 million. Miscalculations of as much as $1 million are not uncommon; the lower number for "Hostel," however, does mean that last year's "White Noise" ($24.1 million) stands as the only movie to open with more than $20 million in business on the first weekend in January. Other titles have grossed more on that weekend, but they have been holdovers from December.

Additionally, "Brokeback Mountain" traded places with "Rumor Has It ... ," moving up to No. 8 while the latter movie slid to No. 9.
