New Moon beat off three top 5 newcomers and topped $5 million in its third week. Kristen Stewart has two other movies on release at present, featuring as de Niro’s daughter in What Just Happened? (30) and as terminally ill girl in The Cake Eaters (23). Where are those damned immortals when you really need one?
At the other end of the chart, The Strength of Water hangs in there. Whisper it quietly, but there’s a fair chance its box office take will end up higher than that of Vintner’s Luck.
