"Dreamgirls" #1 On Wednesday Too
That Oscar snub -- combined with eight nominations and a #1 soundtrack -- have kept "Dreamgirls" #1 at the box office for the second day in a row. This is the ONLY time the movie has been at #1 for two days in a row. (Once in midweek, it was #1 for one day and #2 the following day. Other than that, "Dreamgirls" has usually been ranked third or fourth or lower for the entire month it's been in theaters.) Despite that, the movie has had legs and looks likely to hit $100 million, something "Rent" and "The Producers" and "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Moulin Rouge" couldn't come close to doing.
