Last Time I'll Post This: Mystic Lion Beats Giant Ape

Although Kong, more recently released, edged Narnia over the weekend, Narnia is now back to beating Kong:

"Kong" finished a solid second on Tuesday with $7,919,225. But "Narnia" ruled, with $9,224,127.

The two movies have been locked in a dead heat for the last two weeks, but it now seems that "Narnia" has completely wedged "Kong" out of first place.

This can only be frustrating news for the folks at Universal. "Kong" cost $300 million, including marketing and promotion. At this rate, it will take a long time to recoup its expenses and see a profit.

In related news, Hugh Hewitt just called Allah to ask him when he could put him in a pretty sundress and take him out dancin'. And maybe make him "do some stuff" to his friends.

In fairness, it probably didn't help any that when Jack Black was on SNL to promote the failing Kong picture, this was the only thing on the show worth watching.

Jack Black did a Kong song, too. But, uhhh... you're not seeing that one on the Internet, now are you?
