    2008 box office so-so so far

    This year's box office so-so so far

    2008 receipts hit $1.98 billion

    Sony gambling tale '21' should draw the high card
    at the box office this weekend.

    Without any real breakout hits, Hollywood's seeing solid rather than spectacular box office so far this year as the first quarter ends.

    As of Wednesday, 2008 receipts hit $1.98 billion, or 3% above the same point last year, according to Rentrak. And a significant amount of this year's take has come from 2007 holdovers "I Am Legend," "Alvin and the Chipmunks," "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," and "Juno."

    The year's about to see its first $100 million grosser as Fox's "Horton Hears a Who" -- the only pic to post back-to-back weekend wins this year -- crosses the century mark today.

    But 2008 has yet to see the equivalent of "300" which launched a year ago with a stunning $70.8 million opening weekend on its way to a $210 million domestic gross. The best action performers so far in 2008 have been "Cloverfield," "10,000 BC," "Jumper" and "Vantage Point" -- none of which have topped the $80 million mark, though "10,000 BC" should do so this weekend.

    And were it not for the standout $64 million perf of tween concert fave "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds," 2008 would trail last year's total.
