U.S. theatergoers chose suspense over skating, as Disturbia unseated Blades Of Glory for the U.S. box office championship. The peeping tom thriller starring Shia LaBeouf and David Morse took in $23 million to debut at number one last weekend.
The real winner continues to be DreamWorks Pictures, distributor of both Disturbia and Blades Of Glory.
LeBeouf, who plays a teen under house arrest who suspects a neighbor of murder, is also on the upswing. The 20-year-old actor has been confirmed to appear in the fourth Indiana Jones movie, set for worldwide release in May, 2008.
He will also provide the lead voice for this year's animated penguin comedy Surf's Up, while starring in the science fiction adventure Transformers.
