Box Office: It Takes a Brave One to Be No. 1

The Jodie Foster/Terrence Howard thriller The Brave One reached the No. 1 spot at the box office over a relatively slow weekend, bringing in approximately $14 million. Variety reports that the main audience for the film was older women, and that its continued success will depend on whether men will be drawn to see it as well.

3:10 to Yuma just barely beat out Mr. Woodcock for the No. 2 spot, with the Western raking in $9.15 million while the gym teacher comedy grossed $9.10. Dragon Wars (or D-War) came in fourth place and Superbad continued to please audiences (and, consequently, studio heads), taking the No. 5 slot.

This weekend looks like it offers a little bit of something for everyone, from The Jane Austen Book Club and Resident Evil 3: Extinction, to Good Luck Chuck and Sydney White. Oh, and that other Western flick with good-looking men, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford also opens this weekend.

I *LOVED* this movie. I had not heard of it (sorry buzz, but I've been busy at work) and I went with my boyf who said the trailer didn't look to good but there was nothing else to see...(for him...I hardly ever go to movies) in any case...I was pulled in furing the first 20 minutes and had no idea it took 2.5 hours to watch. totally awesome movie. and, what was wrong with the ending? It ended different than i thought it would, but wish I knew what happened in the future with two of the characters!

Didn't finish my comment. I think women can easily carry box office numbers... Why do you think chick flicks do so well? It's certainly not from male attendance.

Seriously, SoftRockStar...what a load of nonsense. I went and saw The Brave One too. I didn't think it was bad, but I didn't like the ending at all. Felt like a copout after so much exposition about doing the right thing from one of the characters.

Bah! Men! If women make up 50% of the population, why is everyone always concerned with the male audience?
