It was a pretty crappy weekend at the movies. While Paranormal activity did climb up to the top with $22 million for the weekend, all of the newer releases fell flat on their collective asses. Saw VI came in 2nd place with an anemic $14.8 million. Astroboy limped into 6th place with $7 million and Cirque du Freak, may as well change its name to Cirque du Suck with it’s 8th place premier of just $6.3 million.
One of the saddest things is that Saw knocked Where The Wild Things Are down to 3rd place with just $14.2 million.
