Weekend Box Office: 04/04/08 – 04/06/08

Three new films enter the Top Ten this week and they happen to be the three new films which opened this weekend. The act of counting cards held onto the top spot, but it is closely followed by some old school football. A little sunshine comes down upon Nim’s Island in the third spot. And in case you hadn’t seen the commercials (note sarcasm), The Ruins opened this weekend too. Full numbers inside.
