Another weekend down and the gap, though narrowing, is still pretty darn big.

So, the gap is currently $20.8 million. While there are signs that Anchorman 2 is slowing down a bit more than Hustle (it dropped 45.9% from last weekend, while Hustle only fell 33.7%), there is still a lot of room between these two flicks. I do expect Hustle to get an Oscar nomination bounce when noms are announced on Thursday Jan 16th but if I had to guess I would say it will be a tiny bit too little, too late for Hustle to catch Anchorman 2 by our self-imposed end-of-January deadline.
