"Marley & Me" Stirs It Up With $14.75 M On Xmas Day
Twentieth Century Fox says "Marley & Me" has set a Christmas Day record with $14.75 million at the box office. That breaks the previous mark of $10.2 million, set by "Ali" in 2001, according to Media By Numbers LLC. And "Marley & Me" may not be alone, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Bedtime Stories" were also expected to move past the previous Christmas Day mark, according to some studio estimates. Even "Valkyrie" had a strong Yuletide opening with more than $8 million, those numbers show!
