Weekend Box Office: The Town in Command, Easy A Makes the Grade

View Chris Kavan's Profile

Looks like Ben Affleck has been missed as the director / actor's The Town came out on top with $23.8 million and high praise from the mostly male audience. Although it came in second place, the Emma Stone comedy Easy A may well be the top winner. Why? Because while it only made $18.2 million - the budget was a scant $8 million (compared to around $37 million for The Town). It also was a good bet with audiences and critics.

The third-place entry Devil, with $12.5 million, wasn't so lucky. With only so-so numbers, and not much praise, it should fall hard and be lucky to break the $30 million mark. The other new release, the animated Alpha and Omega, earned only $9.2 million for a 5th place showing.

Last week's #1-by-default Resident Evil: Afterlife fell pretty hard, landing in 4th with $10.1 million - about on par for a horror movie with a limited audience. Takers is showing some legs, staying at #6 with $3.0 million while Machete clings to life at #10 with $1.7 million. Meanwhile Inception actually climbed a spot to #8 with $2 million.

Next week's best bets look to be Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, the animated Owls of Ga'Hoole and the female-aimed comedy You Again.

The Town was very overrated, and, with the exception of Jeremy Renner (who played the unstable, hot-headed "Jem" very well), the actors/actresses were mediocre at best. The romance between Doug and Claire was paltry at best, and rather forced, with no real chemistry, and was overemphasized in this film. Having read Chuck Hogan's novel, Prince of Thieves, on which The Town was based, I liked the novel far better than the film.
