Weekend Box Office -- "Flags" Drooping
Here are the estimates for the weekend box office based on Friday figures, per Box Office Prophets. "Saw 3" looks set for $36 mil, "The Prestige" and "The Departed" might hit $10 mil, "Running With Scissors" is expanding well while "Marie Antoinette" is fading and "Flags of OUr Fathers" is down more than 40% from its opening weekend. Maybe weekday and matinee numbers will be better for this older skewing film, but I don't think it looks good. No word yet on "Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D" which was sold out in prime screenings yesterday here in New York. And Variety mentions that "The Devil Wears Prada" will gross more overseas than the $100+ mil it madere here -- great news for Streep. Final figures tomorrow.
