IT'S MONDAY! We're fresh out of the weekend! I'm one of those people who enjoy keeping up with the box office so I can enjoy the results! It's always VERY interesting when it's a weekend of new releases.
Especially this particular weekend! I heard from many people their disliking for remakes as well as for the Texas Chainsaw 3D. YET, people can't seem to get enough of it. Although it made number 9 this week, it probably will be even lower next week. Needless to say, it doesn't matter. It earned over 5 million within 2 weeks.
A Haunted House did a whole lot better than many people expected! It earned $18.8 million! For those who live under a tree or...a rock, it's a horror spoof from Marlon Wayans. Their production budget was $2.5 million.
