Box Office Final: 'Game Plan' widens its lead

The weekend’s final box office numbers are out, and The Game Plan scored a few more points on Sunday than originally reported. The Rock’s family comedy wound up the weekend with $23 million (well, $22,950,971), a quarter of a mil better than its early estimate. That broadened the gap between the No. 1 film and the No. 2 finisher, The Kingdom, which scored a weak $17.1 mil (down from its initial call of $17.7 mil). Meanwhile, with a $1.2 mil take, the weekend’s 15th-place release, Transformers, moved into the top 20 of all-time domestic releases — its $315.2 mil total trumps The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’s $314.8 mil. Take that, Frodo!

The final top 10 reads as follows:

1. The Game Plan / $23.0 mil weekend / $23.0 mil cume

2. The Kingdom / $17.1 mil / $17.1 mil

3. Resident Evil: Extinction / $8.0 mil / $36.8 mil

4. Good Luck Chuck / $6.2 mil / $23.5 mil

5. 3:10 to Yuma / $4.2 mil / $44.0 mil

6. The Brave One / $3.7 mil / $30.8 mil

7. Mr. Woodcock / $2.9 mil / $19.6 mil

8. Eastern Promises / $2.9 mil / $11.3 mil

9. Sydney White / $2.6 mil / $8.4 mil

10. Across the Universe / $2.0 mil / $5.5 mil
