Poll: Which Film Rocked Your Box Office This Weekend?
While Facebook boasts over 500 million members, apparently not all of them were interested in watching a film about how that site came to be. Even so (and of course we need to take into consideration that it's only been open for one weekend, and we're not including international audiences), The Social Network still managed to claw its way to the top of the box office with $23 million. Following behind in second place was Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole ($10.9 million), which just narrowly defeated last week's box office champ, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps ($10.1 million).
Most surprisingly (to me at least), Let Me In finished in eighth place with only $5.3 million, despite the fact that critics have been hailing it as the best horror film of the year. Are people sick of vampires? Did the creepy little vampire kid scare everyone away? C'mon folks, it's October – shouldn't we be itching for a scary movie or several?
The other new release, Case 39, finished right in front of Let Me In with $5.4 million, proving (perhaps) that people just aren't in the mood for scary movies right now. Paranormal Activity 2 and Saw 3D arrive later this month (closer to Halloween), so hopefully that mood will change.
Which film(s) did you see this weekend? Was The Social Network your favorite, or did another film rock your box office just a wee bit more? Sound off in our poll below …
