The Basterds managed to slice and dice their way to number one this weekend with $37.6 million, making it Tarantino’s best opening since Kill Bill Vol. 2. District 9 dropped down to number two this weekend with $18.9 million and bringing it’s total to over $73 million. Since it cost $30 million to make it’s more than doubled it’s budget. GI Joe dropped down another slot to number three with $12.5 million and has made over $120 million in total. Julie and Julia and The Time Traveler’s Wife rounded out the top 5. The two other movies this weekend, Post Grad and Shorts both didn’t really register. Shorts debuted at sixth and Post Grad barely made it into the tenth spot, barely beating last week’s The Goods.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
