Nicole Kidman's "The Golden Compass" was the #1 movie at the box office this weekend, but it still under performed. New Line hoped it would open between $30 and $40 million. It opened at $26.1 million. The flick cost $180 million to make. I'm guessing $15 million went towards Nicky's daily botox injections. Even though it didn't do too well in the States, the movie did better Internationally.
"Enchanted" dropped to #2 with $10.7 million and "This Christmas" remained in third with $5 million.
Over the past couple of months "The Golden Compass" has drew some controversy from religious groups over its Atheist themes. The Catholic League called for a boycott of the film. What doesn't the Catholic League want to boycott?
Hooray Nicky! Let's celebrate with some botox-tinis. You are still Queen of the Flop! Now and forever….
