Classy films go wide, box office plummets

Oh, dear, the commoners didn't show.

According to the Internet Movie Database, "Despite the addition of numerous critically praised films to the marquees of thousands of theaters [i.e Dreamgirls, Pan's Labyrinth, Babel, The Queen, and The Last King of Scotland all went wide, or wider], the overall box office plummeted 20 percent from the same week a year ago." The winners for the weekend? Stomp the Yard and Night at the Museum. Just remember that next time you complain about what's at the multiplex.
