Another day, another #2 finish for TPOH. Chalk up another $2.8 million for Tuesday bringing its total to $107.3 million. TPOH will cross the $110 million mark by Friday and looks to do another $8-12 million over the weekend. The movie looks to cross the $120 million by Monday if estimates hold.

The Pursuit of Happyness continues its strong showing at the box office. Friday's estimates are in and TPOH is once again in 2nd place with $4.1 million raising its overall total to $115.2 million.

The critically-acclaimed movie is expected to cross the $120 million mark on Saturday and possibly the $125 million mark on Sunday if estimates hold.

The weekend estimates are in and it's another second place finish for The Pursuit of Happyness. The movie, starring 3-time Golden Globe Nominee Will Smith, grossed $13 million over the weekend, just a 33% drop from last weekend. The movie has now grossed $124.1 million since its December 15th release.

Some projections now have TPOH finishing somewhere near $150 million domestically, making it one of the highest grossing films of 2006. As of right now, TPOH ranks #16 on the 2006 Domestic Box Office list.

The actual numbers from the weekend are in... and they came pretty close to the estimates. The Pursuit of Happyness raked in another $12.8 million over the weekend giving it a $124 million total. It was the movie's 3rd straight 2nd place finish after debuting at #1. This movie has had unexpectedly strong legs due to its strong word of mouth and favorable reviews. TPOH lost only 33.5% of its box office total from last weekend.

Unless something really strange happens, TPOH will cross the $125 million mark on Monday and looks to finish around $150 million as the movie begins opening overseas in the coming weeks.

For the first time since Christmas day, The Pursuit of Happyness finished outside of the top 2 on Monday. Not to worry though as it regained the #2 position on Tuesday. In those 2 days, TPOH racked up another $1.6 million raising its overall total to $125.7 million. Its 2006 box-office ranking is now #15 while its worldwide ranking is #36.

European fans of Will Smith will finally get a chance to see the critically-acclaimed movie as it will premiere in the U.K. on January 12th and Germany on January 18th.

Update:

Apparently people are fascinated by Stomp The Yard as it crushed the competition in Friday's box office estimates. The movie based on fraternity steppers(and I should know something about that having graduated from Morehouse College in Atlanta) pulled in $7.2 million for 1st place.

The Pursuit of Happyness finished in 3rd place pulling in $2.5 million to raise its total to $129.9 million. The movie could cross the $135 million mark by the end of the weekend and certainly by Monday for the 4-day MLK Holiday weekend. Also, TPOH premieres in the U.K. so we should start to see international numbers coming in early next week.

Box Office Update:

After 3 consecutive weekends at #2, The Pursuit of Happyness finished third this weekend according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. The movie, starring SAG & Golden Globe nominee Will Smith, finished with $9.1 million to bring its total to $134.4 million. The movie is continuing to show strong legs as it lost only 29.4% of its box office total from last weekend. It is expected to cross the $135 million mark on Monday.

The 4-day MLK Holiday estimates will be out Monday morning with the actual 4-day numbers expected by Tuesday afternoon.

Most experts did not think TPOH could get to $100 million. At the pace it's on it looks to be a lock to surpass $150 million further cementing Will Smith's status as a bonafide all-around actor and star. The movie ranks #13 on the 2006 Yearly Box-Office list.

Update:

Despite losing the Best Actor Golden Globe award to Forrest Whitaker, Will Smith still has plenty to cheer about. The Pursuit of Happyness continued its strong run with a 3rd place finish over the 4-day MLK holiday. The movie grossed $11 million to boost its total to $138.3 million.

The actual 4-day weekend numbers will come out Tuesday evening while the first international box-office numbers should come in by week's end.
