For those of you keeping score, it turns out that "Nim's Island" actually made more at the box-office this weekend than "Leatherheads." The Hollywood Reporter has the details about the gap between estimates and actuals.
To me it's interesting only because the movie studios have always relied on star power as the one, true coin of value in their tinseled realm, and if George Clooney can't put a movie over in 2008, who can? (If you say Miley Cyrus, I'll scream.)
