Box office report: 'The Final Destination' tops three-day estimates

Posted on

Labor Day Weekend isn’t quite over yet, but three-day box office estimates have already declared a winner: The Final Destination. With a soft 55 percent drop (unusual for a horror movie), the 3-D sequel took in an estimated $12.4 million over the Friday-Sunday frame. Second place went to the Sandra Bullock-Bradley Cooper rom com All About Steve, which made $11.2 million—a decent total, but only a third of the $33.6 pulled in by Bullock’s The Proposal on its first weekend in June. Meanwhile, Quentin Tarantino’s three-week-old Inglourious Basterds (No. 3, $10.8 million) proved to be the action pic of choice, beating both a wimpy newcomer, Gerard Butler’s Gamer (No. 4, $9 million), and a strong holdover, District 9 (No. 5, $7 million). Further down the charts, Mike Judge’s Extract (No. 10, $4.2 million) just barely made it into the top ten in its opening weekend. Be sure to check back tomorrow for a full four-day recap.

1. The Final Destination — $12.4 million

2. All About Steve — $11.2 million

3. Inglourious Basterds — $10.8 million

4. Gamer — $9 million

5. District 9 — $7 million

6. Halloween II — $5.6 million

7. Julie & Julia — $5.2 million

8. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra — $5.1 million

9. The Time Traveler’s Wife — $4.2 million

10. Extract — $4.2 million
