The critically acclaimed musical Dreamgirls starring Jamie Foxx, Beyonce Knowles, and Jennifer Hudson, drew in $18.7 million over the weekend, finishing third behind Night at a Museum starring Ben Stiller and The Pursuit of Happiness starring Will Smith.
Dreamgirls finished strong despite the movie being shown in only 852 theatres. However, it is scheduled that Dreamgirls will expand to 1,800 theatres on January 12, potentially giving Dreamgirls a bigger box office push.
Dreamgirls now has a cumulative gross of $41.7 million.
Dreamgirls is currently nominated for five Golden Globe Awards including Best Motion Picture for a Musical or a Comedy, and Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress in a Musical or Comedy for Knowles and Hudson, respectively.
