Shia LaBeouf is everywhere, and don't expect him to go away any time soon, because this weekend proved the young star has serious star power. His new movie, Disturbia, was No. 1 at the box office this weekend, reports Variety, taking in $23 million.
Carry-overs Blades of Glory and Meet the Robinsons took second and third place, while the dreadful Halle Berry vehicle Perfect Stranger landed in the fourth spot, bringing in $11.5 million. There was also more bad news for Grindhouse, which saw revenues fall 63 percent in its second weekend of release.
I'm glad to see Shia LaBeouf and Disturbia succeed. The movie accomplished what it set out to do very well, and the same can be said for its box-office performance. The PG-13 thriller was obviously designed to get teens into theaters, and that's precisely what happened.
