Top 10 at the Weekend Box Office


  • Sony's The Social Network topped the weekend box office, but debuted in the lower end of projections. The David Fincher-helmed drama about the creation of Facebook posted an estimated $23 million.
  • The 3D family adventure Legend of the Guardian: Owls of Ga'Hoole, from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, dipped just 33% from its week-earlier opening for a surprisingly strong $10.9 million -- good for second place and $30 million in cumulative take.
  • Fox's Michael Douglas starrer Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps declined 47% to fetch $10.1 million in third place in its second weekend with a $35.9 million cume, while the Warners/Legendary heist thriller The Town finished fourth with $10 million and a $64.3 million cume through three frames.
  • Two other new wide releases settled for modest debuts: Paramount Vantage's demonic-possession pic Case 39 (which sat on the shelf for a couple of years) fetched $5.4 million in seventh place, and Overture's vampire thriller Let Me In grabbed $5.3 million in eighth.
  • Collectively, the weekend top 10 registered $83.8 million, or 7% less than top performers in the same frame last year.
  • All figures are industry estimates. Final weekend figures will be released on Monday.
