Weekend Box Office: 04/18/08 – 04/20/08

April’s showers are forcing everyone inside and the numbers are still looking good at the box office; especially for Dr. Seuss who is holding on strong even after six weeks out. Four other films though opened this weekend and made their debuts in the Top Ten. Many studios are hoping to get out all the smaller films they can because summer and its blockbusters are just around the corner. Full numbers inside.
