10.25.09 by REELZ
||At the week 5 mark, it's Blair Witch Project $107.3M, Paranormal Activity, $62.5M.
||Has the indignity of getting crushed by $15K-budget movie, but with a mere $11M budget this pic is already in the black.
|Where the Wild Things Are
||Big Week 2 drop-off puts the financial viability of this big-budget pic into question.
|Law Abiding Citizen
||Small Week 2 drop-off keeps this thinking man's Saw in Top 5.
||Critics hated on this movie but it's also in the black after its third week ($70M budget).
Bomb of the Week: This week is a pick'em between Astro Boy and Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant. Both movies got very wide releases but didn't even crack the Top 5. "Animation fatigue" and "vampire fatigue" were cited.
