Ice and Snow as Are We There Yet? Takes Box Office

Despite the bad weather on the east coast chilling moviegoer’s enthusiasm Ice Cube’s “Are We There Yet?” still managed to bring in $18.5 million at the US box office as it topped the weekend chart.

“Coach Carter,” which topped last week’s chart, came in second place with $11 million while five-week veteran “Meet the Fockers” pulled in a respectable 10 million, taking its total to over $247 million.

“In Good Company” came it at four with $8.5 million and animal adventure “Racing Stripes” at fifth spot.

“Assault on Precinct 13″ opened in sixth place with a moderate $7 million, meantime Fox’s “Elektra” slipped even further coming in at ten with $3.8 million, a drop of over 70% since last week.
