Happy Feet Tops Box Office Again

Happy Feet Tops Box Office Again

Somehow those delusionists at danielcraigisnotbond.com will turn the fact that Happy Feet has once more pipped Casino Royale to the top of the US box office as proof that the 007 has been killed stone dead. Presumably they'll be doing this while sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting "La-la-la I'm not listening".

It was a conclusive win for the flappy-footed penguins, who hauled in an additional $37.9 million, a drop of only 8.6% from last week, to tap past the $100 million mark. Bond took an extra $31 million, to put it on $94.2 million, putting it well on course to pass Die Another Day's $161 million.

It was a lacklustre weekend for the rest of the chart. People felt they'd seen everything on offer from Tony Scott's thriller Deja Vu before, so only showed up to the tune of $20.9million. Danny DeVito/Matthew Broderick Christmas piffle Deck The Halls limped in with $12 million.

Two other new releases were stillborn. Darren Aronofsky's divisive trippy time-spanning love story The Fountain landed with a dull thud, only enticing enough people to make it to $3.73million. More shocking was the massive underperformance of Tenacious D in: The Pick Of Destiny, which took just $3.1millon, barely enough to cover Jack Black's Ritalin prescription.

In the global box office Bond ruled, pushing his total haul to a hefty $222.4 millon, which should absolutely guarantee that Bond will return.
