Another disappointing weekend for The Golden Compass

Yahoo! reports that the Golden Compass, with huge star power, hype and a $180 million budget, plummeted in ticket sales this weekend...

The previous No. 1 movie, New Line Cinema's fantasy "The Golden Compass," nose-dived in its second weekend, coming in third with $9 million, down a dismal 65 percent from its less-than-expected $25.8 million debut a week earlier.

"The Golden Compass," which cost $180 million to produce, has done $90 million so far overseas but has proven a dud domestically with just $41 million.

I guess if you make a movie with an anti-Christian view but expect families to come out, you ought to consider that those with the biggest families tend to be the most religious. Duh!
