101909: Weekend Box Office

Wild Things Top Box Office


If you’re looking for some wild things, you will find them at the top of the box office. Spike Jonze’s adaptation of the children’s book pulled in an estimated $32.5 million in its debut weekend on the silver screen.

Next up, the Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx thriller Law Abiding Citizen debuted at number two. Another R rated flick makes a surprising number three appearance in the weekend box office numbers. Paranormal Activity just expanded into wide release on Friday. It’s one of those odd money makers as the reported production budget for the movie was just $15,000.

Last weeks box office champion, the Vince Vaughn flick Couples Retreat fell to fourth place. But honestly, this is no surprise to me at all.
