The Chronic-WHAT-cles of Narnia

When I hear "The Chronicles of Narnia," I think of "Saturday Night Live"'s digital short "Lazy Sunday". (If you don't understand the title to this blog post, you should do yourself a favor and click that link for two and a half minutes of amusement.) But apparently I'm in the minority with that line of thought. The third installment in the "Narnia" series had a solid first-place finish in its box office debut.

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Final figures will be released Monday.
1. “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” $24.5 million. (Review from The AP's Jake Coyle)
2. “The Tourist,” $17 million. (Review from The AP's Christy Lemire)
3. “Tangled,” $14.6 million. (Review from Coyle)
4. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” $8.5 million. (review from The News-Herald's Mark Meszoros)
5. “Unstoppable,” $3.8 million. ("Newbury Township actor lands role in 'Unstoppable'" by Diane Ryder)
