Poll: You Rate the Box Office Winner: The Rite

'The Rite'Okay, feel free to poke fun at me for incorrectly predicting the box office winner for the first time this year, but note that I did say The Rite was working off some pretty decent buzz and that it certainly had the best shot to take that number one spot. That counts for something, right? But yes, The Rite did wind up taking the weekend box office with $15 million, beating out last week’s winner, No Strings Attached ($13.7 million), by a little over a million smackers. The other new release for the week, The Mechanic, slid into third with $11.5 million, while awards buzz helped The King’s Speech land fourth with $11.1 million. Meanwhile, that feisty Western True Grit still managed to hang around the top five with a fifth place finish of $7.6 million.

As we do whenever a new film wins the box office, we want to know what you really thought of it. Did it deserve its box office win, or do you regret passing it up? Over at Rotten Tomatoes, critics weren’t too kind to the Anthony Hopkins religious thriller, giving it a 17% Rotten rating. Users of the site, however, were much more favorable with their 54% Fresh rating.
 
Obviously all that matters is what Fandango readers thought of the film, so feel free to sound off in a poll below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
