Box Office News: Watchmen Takes No. 2 Spot Behind Race to Witch Mountain

Box Office: Watchmen Gives Up Top Spot to Witch Mountain

Last week Watchmen screenwriter David Hayter posted an open letter to fans asking them to buy more tickets to see his movie, warning that "if it drops off the radar after the first weekend, they will never allow a film like this to be made again."

Well, it looks like his plea went unheeded as Watchmen slipped from the top spot, coming in at No. 2 behind Disney's family-friendly Race to Witch Mountain.

The Last House on the Left took the third spot, followed by Taken at No. 4 and Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail at No. 5.

I was obsessed with the Witch Mountain movies when I was a kid, so I know I will end up seeing the new version when it's on DVD, even though it looks pretty lame.

I'm planning on watching it again! I loved Watchmen! For me it was an awesome movie and loved how faithful they were to the book (well, 98% faithful)
