    Disney's 'Dan' surrounded by horror

    Lionsgate's "Saw IV" got the blood flowing a bit in the recently lifeless domestic boxoffice, opening at No. 1 with an estimated $32.1 million during the pre-Halloween weekend.

    Disney's PG-13 romantic comedy "Dan in Real Life" debuted with a credible second-place performance, ringing up $12.1 million. And Sony's vampire film "30 Days of Night" finished third despite a 58% drop from its opening grosses, chomping into another $6.7 million while fleshing out its 10-day cume to $27.3 million.
    "Dan" presented moviegoers with a real option to R-rated "Saw IV" during the weekend, and the older-skewing Steve Carell-Juliette Binoche starrer drew audiences comprising 70% couples.

    "Audiences responded well to having a nice, funny movie back in the theaters," Disney distribution president Chuck Viane said.

    About 55% of "Dan" patrons were female.
    Miramax's "Gone Baby Gone," written and directed by Ben Affleck, fell 29% to $3.9 million in seventh place for a 10-day cume of $11.3 million.

    Also, Disney's 3-D rerelease of the animated "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas" used a 37% drop from sturdy opening grosses to ring up $3.3 million from just 564 theaters and finish 10th, bumping its cume to a notable $10 million.

    Typical. The "Saw" movies have had the #1 spot on it's opening weekend for 4 years in a row now. Thankfully, the next one won't be out until 2009 (not that I have seen any of them, because I haven't).
