WKEND BOX OFFICE: RISE OF THE LICHEN

By 01.26.09

Paul Blart: Mall Cop earned $21.5 million dollars this weekend according to early projections, dropping only 32% from its haul last weekend and putting it on top for the second week in a row.  “God is dead,” said industry insiders.

The closest thing to good news is that the awesome Gran Torino fell only 27% since last  weekend after being out for seven weeks (a pretty solid performance), and Inkheart, Brendan Fraser’s latest lamefest, debuted a disappointing seventh.  But in a week where Paul Blart‘s on top, good news is only good in the sense that you can eat all the ice cream you want and not gain weight, but only because you have cancer.
