Battle at the Box Office 2/22

It was a fairly easy win at the box office this weekend for Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island. The movie took in $40.2 million, easily more than doubling second place. Speaking of second place, Valentine’s Day, with it’s titular holiday over, suffered an almost 70% drop off, bringing in only $17.2 million. Avatar benefited from these drop offs and came in third place with $16.1 million and only a 31% drop off from the previous week. Percy Jackson and The Wolfman are on their way to Bombville as they both dropped more than 50% from last weekend. Percy took in $15.3 and The Wolfman took in only $9.8 million. Considering their budgets they are pretty far away from making any money back. The only other big mover is Crazy Heart which continues to gain theaters and went from ninth place to eighth place.
