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.

hey erik...i think you missed green hornet. it was number 4 i think with 11m pushing grit down to number 6 not 5...just saying.
I loved the movie it was not what I expected. It was the message that got you in the end. What really makes us think that just because we hear DEVIL it has to scare us to death? The movie had a very powerful message and if you were just expecting to get really frightened then you missed it. Anthony Hopkins is great but we already knew that right? The movie is worth watching twice in my book.
I am glad I was part of making it number one this week.
Pretty awful. Very unintentionally funny. Did anyone find Anthony Hopkins creepy at all? It all just seemed kind of silly to me. I think The Last Exorcism was so much better. Genuinely creepy without having to use all those reality-shattering special effects.
