Prisoners

The excellent and intense psychological thriller Prisoners won the top slot in this weekend’s box office race, with over $21 million.

A film so good that even Terrance Howard was bearable, and is really very good in his role. He even cried during his performance for what must be the 106th time and it didn’t bother me one single bit. That’s how good the film is.

On the opposite end of the scale was the Chris Brown starrer, Battle of the Year, which completely tanked, grossing a measly $5 million this weekend. But let’s be honest. Was anyone interested in seeing the film, let alone a film with Chris Brown in it?

As for holdouts, Insidious Chapter 2 was in second place, the Spanish-language comedy Instructions Not Included can definitely lay claim to be a late summer sleeper hit, and Lee Daniels’ The Butler still looks good to do around $120 million before all is said and done.

1) Prisoners WB $21,430,000 
2) Insidious Chapter 2 FD $14,500,000  Total: $60,855,000 
3) The Family Rela. $7,000,000 Total: $25,641,000 
4) Instructions Not Included LGF $5,700,000 Total:  $34,262,000 
5) Battle of the Year SGem $5,000,000 
6) We're the Millers WB $4,670,000  $138,176,000  
7) Lee Daniels' The Butler Wein. $4,304,000 Total:  $106,452,000  
8) Riddick Uni. $3,672,000 Total:  $37,180,000 
90 The Wizard of Oz (3D/IMAX) WB $3,022,000
