Sorry, I'm Back
I went away for a short anniversary trip, and forgot to post about the weekend movies before I left.
In theory, I'm returning with a mental reboot, but in fact I had (and still have) severe bronchitis all weekend. Still, I did avoid reading or writing anything for 5 days.
Meanwhile, though the economy continues to head south, the box office was huge this past weekend. Friday the 13th did over $43 million for its first 4 days, an opening-weekend record for a horror movie.
Confessions of a Shopaholic did a solid $17.8 million. The International did a slightly-underwhelming $10.7 million.
He's Just Not That Into You, Taken and Coraline are all holding on very well, each doing between $18 and 23 million for the weekend.
