Evan, 1408 top charts
Variety reports that, as expected, Evan Almighty topped the weekend box-office charts with $32.1 million in ticket sales. What was not expected was that 1408, the movie based on a short story by Stephen King, starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jaackson, would come in second with $20.1 million.
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer was third, and Ocean’s Thirteen was fourth.
Sicko, the new documentary from Michael Moore, opened in limited release and earned $70,000 at its one and only venue in New York City. Reports say that all the Saturday screenings for the film sold out in 43 markets.
