It's another strong finish for Pursuit of Happyness. The movie finished the weekend at #2 for the second straight weekend with a $19.3 million total bringing its overall total to $98.3 million. The Pursuit of Happyness saw a 30% increase from last weekend's box office total.

According to Box Office Mojo, The Pursuit of Happyness raked in another $5.4 million on New Year's Day giving it a $24.7 million New Year's Day Weekend box office total. That's good for 2nd place for the second consecutive week.

More importantly, TPOH has crossed the $100 million dollar plateau. This is significant for two reasons. One - dramas, even critically-acclaimed dramas like TPOH, normally don't gross $100 million domestically. Two - it marks the sixth straight film starring Will Smith to cross the $100 million mark.

The Pursuit of Happyness' total is now $103.7 million. The movie could finish somewhere between $125-150 million.

The weekend box office numbers are now official and The Pursuit of Happyness pulled in $25.46 million during the New Year's Day Weekend for 2nd place. And on the strength of a 2nd consecutive #2 finish, TPOH has now grossed $104.5 million in 3 weeks.

The movie, buoyed by strong reviews and an even stronger word-of-mouth, was up 71.8% from the previous week. Even though it's only been out for 3 weeks, it ranks #18 on the 2006 Domestic Box-Office list. Again, it's Will Smith's 6th straight $100 million movie and his 10th overall.
