1. Friday the 13th – $42.7 million
2. He’s Just Not That Into You – $19.6 million
3. Taken – $19 million
4. Confessions of a Shopaholic – $15 million
5. Coraline – $14.8 million
So Friday the 13th brought out all the horror fans this weekend and surprised Chris and I tremendously (Chris a lot more because he omitted the film entirely on his Top 5). Overall, the box office did better than we predicted. Taken grossed $19 million, just 7.5% down from last weekend and Coraline grossed $14.8 million for a solid second weekend. Other notes, The International debuted with $9.4 million for 7th place.
Check back on Friday for our new predictions. There will be two new releases: Fired Up and Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail. Uh oh, Tyler Perry’s back… let’s see how much damage he can do.
