Surprisingly the crappy looking exorcism movie, The Rite, took the top spot at the box office this weekend. The movie took in just over $15 million but the only redeeming thing I saw from it this weekend at work was Anthony Hopkins having tons of fun acting like demon. Last week’s number one, No Strings Attached, dropped down to second with $13.6 million while the other new release, The Mechanic, came in third with $11.5 million. The Green Hornet and The King’s Speech rounded out the top 5. The Dilemna had a pretty big drop, going from third to seventh over the weekend while 127 Hours finally got a fairly wide release and went from 34th to 14th. This weekend we’ll see if James Cameron 3D can bring in the big bucks again with the cave thriller Sanctum.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
