‘Dreamgirls’ Blows Up the Box Office


Jennifer Hudson and BeyoncĂ© Knowles perform in “It’s All Over.”

THE producers projected Dreamgirls would open on Christmas to $4.5 USD. It earned $8.4 USD, which was second place to Night at the Museum, which played in almost 3,700 theaters.

But Dreamgirls only played on 852 screens, giving it a whopping $9,836 USD average per screen, which placed it far above any other film (2nd place went to Museum with $3,242 per screen).

Yowza.

Go, Dreamgirls!

My review is forthcoming.
