WEEKEND BOX OFFICE
Samuel L. Jackson’s cop thriller, LAKEVIEW TERRACE, lead the way at the box-office this weekend as the film, which cost just 20 million to produce, pulled in 15.6 mill in ticket sales. That’s at the high end of studio expectations. Last week’s top attraction, BURN AFTER READING, dropped off 49% in business, grossing 11.3 mill, giving it a 10 day total of 36.2.
Lionsgate’s raunchy R-rated comedy, MY BEST FRIEND’S GIRL, opened without any advance reviews and faired poorly, placing third with a weak 8.3 mill in receipts. I still don’t understand the decisions Kate Hudson has made with her career. Why she had involvement in this project is perplexing at best! I think it’s time for a new agent. Paging Ari Gold!
The animated movie, IGOR, placed fourth with a weak 8 mill in business. The week’s other new release, GHOSTTOWN, starring the popular British comedian Ricky Gervais, failed to find an audience. Despite really good reviews, the comedy about a dentist who sees dead people grossed just 5.1 mill in ticket sales in its opening frame for an eighth place finish. Here’s a link to the weekend’s Top Ten
