Weekend Box Office: Network Still Tops Friends' List, Life As We Know It Close Behind

View Chris Kavan's Profile

As I predicted - rightly for once - David Fincher's The Social Network was once again #1 at the box office. Taking in $15.5 - the movie can also claim the title for the least amount of decline out of any #1 movie so far this year. The film only dropped 31% of its audience.

Opening in a strong second was the Katherine Heigl / Josh Duhamel romantic comedy Life As We Know It. Although it wasn't as big as Heigl's Killers - the $14.6 opening is a lot better than the string of rom-com flops recently. Not surprisingly, the film was a big draw with female audiences, as 68% of women made up that number.

The feel-good Disney film Secretariat snapped up third place with $12.6 million. Maybe not Seabiscuit numbers, but it was more than length ahead of such other horsey films as Flicka and Dreamer.

Looking scary - but for the wrong reasons - Wes Craven's My Soul to Take only managed a 5th place showing with $6.9. The 3D aspect didn't seem to help, even though 86% of ticket sales were from 3D screens it was the worst showing for a 3D film beating out Alpha and Omega for that ignoble distinction.

The Guardians of Ga'Hoole dropped to 4th with $7 million. At just under $40 million so far, the film has only earned half of its $80 million budget - not to mention marketing costs.

On the opposite end, Ben Affleck's The Town was 6th with $6.35 million and Easy A was 8th with $4.2 million. Both films have earned more than enough to cover their respective costs.

Looking ahead, it looks like the action/comedy Red, the dramatic Conviction and the complete idiocy of Jackass 3-D will be the biggest draws for next week.
