Studio Estimates for Sept. 4-7:
1. The Final Destination – $15.4 million
2. Inglourious Basterds – $15 million
3. All About Steve – $13.9 million
4. Gamer – $11.2 million
5. District 9 – $9 million
10. Extract – $5.3 million
For the second straight weekend, The Final Destination topped the box office during a relatively disappointing weekend result. Runner-up went to Inglourious Basterds with $15 million followed by two new releases, All About Steve ($13.9 million) and Gamer ($11.2 million). Finishing off the Top 5 was District 9 with $9 million.
Our predictions were way off this Labor Day Weekend. We were all expecting a better result from Gamer and none of us expected the rom-com All About Steve to do so well. Not to boast, but I was able to atleast pick the movies in the Top 5 (just not in correct order). We’ll try to do better next week.
Check back on Friday for our new box office predictions. The hyped up, animated 9 will hit the screens on Wednesday while the rest of the new releases will appear on Friday: Sorority Row, Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself, and Whiteout.
