ABSTRACT
Paramount's "School of Rock" clearly made the grade on its debut in the top spot this weekend. The PG-13-rated comedy, starring Jack Black and directed by Richard Linklater, was met with predominantly favorable reviews and sterling exit polls, which should help ensure class attendance down the road. MGM's "Out of Time" was set in the second spot as the Denzel Washington starrer clocked $16.2 million on its opening weekend. The noir crime thriller, from director Carl Franklin, also carried a PG-13 rating and was the session's widest release with 3,076 theaters. There were no surprises from the weekend's two newest arrivals, both films landed in the area expected heading into the session. "Out of Time" scored fairly strongly in exit polls, though not as strongly as "School," with 90% rating the film favorably, according to CinemaScore.com. So "Time" will have to work a bit harder to hold on to its audience.
