Box Office: Jason's Back as Audiences Make Him No. 1

Box Office: Jason's Back as Audiences Make Him No. 1


The economy may be on shaky ground but you wouldn't know it by looking at the box office totals from this weekend. The Friday the 13th remake actually set records and had "the best opening ever for a horror movie in grossing an estimated $42.2 million from 3,105 theaters through Sunday." Meanwhile He's Just Not That Into You exceeded expectations by snagging the No. 2 spot over the weekend, while Liam Neeson's Taken continued to do strong box office business and came in third place. Confessions of a Shopaholic had a disappointing debut at No. 4.

Coraline rounded out the top five while Paul Blart: Mall Cop, at No. 6, became the first original January release to reach $100 million. Dang!

Finally, Clive Owen and Naomi Watts weren't enough star power to save The International from a lackluster debut. The thriller managed seventh place.

I never saw the original Friday the 13th and I still prefer to see the original than the remake. I'm wary of sequels and remakes for horror movies (i.e: Halloween).

i'm actually REALLY surprised that Jason took the #1 spot in theaters, but i guess that just because i'm not a fan of the movies doesn't meant hat everyone else isn't. as for HJNTIY should have gotten a good result since there's been a lot of good press after the movie came out. it's still really sweet.
