Now that we have some respectable genre films back in theaters, I’m resuming the Box Office report. I almost posted something for the week Jackass 2 was tops at the box office, but I preferred to spend the time openly weeping for the demise of intellect and good taste.

Not making the Top Ten, but a new genre release is the 3D rerelease of “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Considering I could only find it on 2 screens in my entire state (Colorado), I imagine few people even knew of its existence.

  1. The Prestige *
  2. The Departed
  3. Flags of Our Fathers *
  4. Open Season
  5. Flicka *
  6. The Grudge 2
  7. Man of the Year
  8. Marie Antoinette *
  9. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
  10. The Marine
