''Fockers'' goes for third week at No. 1

Meet the Fockers: Tracy Bennett

Hello? Hasn’t everybody met the Fockers already? Apparently not, as the smash sequel Meet the Fockers could very well log a third week at the top of the box office charts.

After seeing a tiny 10 percent decline from its first weekend to its second, Fockers should take a 35 percent slip this weekend to about $27 million, bringing its three-week total past $200 million.

Meanwhile, the weekend’s only new wide release is the freaky thriller White Noise, featuring Michael Keaton (so good to see him back in a starring role, by the way). Thanks to its creepy trailers and lack of thriller competition, the film should make a lot of noise, premiering with about $19 million.

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Aviator will each tumble around 40 percent, to $9 million and $7 million, respectively, while Fat Albert will round out (get it?) the top five with $6 million.
