If Hollywood needed reason to film more movies in 3D, behold Beowulf. The Paramount CG-creation from Robert Zemeckis used the format to score big during its opening bow.

Box Office: Beowulf


Beowulf came in at number one over the weekend with $28.1 million at the box office. The widest release to date for the 3D technology, up to 40% of the film's booty came from audiences who preferred wearing special glasses.

Having seen the film on IMAX 3D, I can attest that Beowulf is one film that deserves 100% viewership in 3D. Action, gore, a legendary story, and some CG nudity, all in 3D -- what's not to like?

Beowulf also performed well internationally, taking the number one spot overseas.

Universal's American Gangster faired well during its third weekend, earning enough skrilla to break the $100 million barrier. The crime drama is the first to do so of the fall releases.

And, speaking of the fall releases, the seasonal box office remains down from last year. Though Beowulf performed well, it couldn't compete to last year's Happy Feet and Casino Royale. Both films opened at $40 million.



All other new releases -- Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium and Love in the Time of Cholera -- performed as expected. The only film being called a disaster is Lions for Lambs, the first outing from United Artists. Compared to a glorified debate team, the film only scored $2.9 million during its second weekend, bringing the film's total cume to $11.6 million.
