It was dishearteningly illustrated in last week’s figures, but we’re reminded once again that people are willing to pay for pretty much anything. Simon West gets out of Director Jail with his cheapie remake When a Stranger Calls, bringing in $22 million for yet another toothless PG-13 horror movie that’s basically an extended trailer.  There wasn’t too much interest in seeing Something New (the title probably frightened everyone), so that romcom had to settle for seventh.

Awards favorite Brokeback Mountain stays high in the saddle, while Walk the Line struts back onto the chart (even Johnny Cash himself has seen it by now). After two full months in the top 10, Narnia finally goes back into the closet.

Next weekend several new horror selections, including Final Destination 3, the remake of The Pink Panther, Harrison Ford’s latest "thriller" Firewall, and the rabid monkey movie Curious George.
