The Final Destination Stayed on Top for Another Week
It’s a second weekend for The Final Destination to stay on top. The movie managed to hold its throne with $12.4 million for the first three days of the long holiday weekend, thus raised its 10-day total to $47.6 million.
It came in ahead of Sandra Bullock’s latest romantic comedy entitled All About Steve, which debuted in second-place with $11.2 million from Friday to Sunday. The flick that tells a story of a lovelorn crossword-puzzle expert (played by Bullock) got some major amount of negative critics, but it successfully earned an $11.2 million.
All About Steve also triumphed Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds that slipped one place to No. 3 with $10.8 million, taking the three-week tally for the World War Two picture starring Brad Pitt to $91 million. It needs just $17 million more to become Tarantino’s biggest film in North America , a title currently held by his 1994 breakthrough Pulp Fiction ($108 million).
Action tale movie, Gamer, debuted at No. 4 with $9 million. Gerard Butler is the main character of the thriller about real humans controlled by players in lethal games. Another new release is the movie Extract, debuted at No. 10 with just under $4.2 million.
