Weekend Box Office Results for September 1-4, 2006
  • There 's not a lot of excitement in the numbers. Virtually every film performed as expected, and the total was about even with last year's Labor Day Weekend.
  • The only good story is the one about the two little engines that could. Distributors had little enthusiasm for Little Miss Sunshine and The Illusionist, despite their sterling reviews, but they have both used word-of-mouth and solid trial performances to expand every week and become minor hits. They occupy the #4 and #5 slots on the chart.
  • N.B.: They are the two best-reviewed films on the list, and Little Miss Sunshine (93% at Rotten Tomatoes) is vying for the best reviews of the year.
