The Giants weren't the only winners this weekend! It was also a great few days for some thrills and chills at the box-office.
The bigger winner at the movies over the Super Bowl weekend was Chronicle, the flick about a bunch of superpower endowed teens from 20th Century Fox. The flick scored a stellar $22 million, far more than was originally anticipated.
Not that far behind was Daniel Radcliffe horror-thriller The Woman in Black with $21 million, which also overperformed by A LOT (but still not reaching the numbers DanRad saw in his Potter days.)
Regardless, as both flicks wrangled in the crowds, total box office revenues were up more than 35 percent over last year. We imagine that both FOX and CBS Films are quite pleased with themselves over this.
Totally worth shelling out for a mega star in one respect and totally worth scaring the crap out of New York in the other.
