The fantasy kids have been battling the gargantuan gorilla for a few weeks, but Narnia took the honors during the long New Year’s weekend, sneaking past Kong and all but guaranteeing we’ll be seeing the next book in the series (Prince Caspian?) steamrolling towards production soon enough.  

With no new major releases, there’s not a lot of excitement elsewhere on the chart — Spielberg’s Munich continues its award-season business on just 560 screens. Getting attention in limited release are Match Point and The Matador, both with strong per-screen averages. 

Next weekend starts the January doldrums with horrific style as Eli Roth’s Hostel and Uwe Boll’s Bloodrayne slash at your eyes and minds, unless you select Grandma’s Boy, a comedy I’ve never heard of until now.
