Box Office Results: Couples Retreat Dominates
10.11.09 by REELZ
||Poor reviews don't affect Vince Vaughn-Jon Favreau comedy as it has highest per-screen average since Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds back in August.
||Low-ish budget zombie comedy continues strong showing in 2nd week of release.
|Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
||Animated adaptation of popular children's book turning into one of the biggest successes of entire year.
|Toy Story / Toy Story 2 (3D)
||3D re-release of classic Pixar flicks a good business decision.
||Micro-budget horror pic rockets into Top 5 after strong reviews and even stronger marketing push from Paramount. Look for this soon at a theater near you.
Bomb of the Week: Without a clear-cut bomb this week we're giving it to Pandorum for the 3rd week in a row as it disappears from theaters faster than you can say "bomb." $15,000 budgeted Paranormal Activity has earned nearly as much as $40M-budget sci-fi horror.
