Top 10 at the Weekend Box Office


  • Sony's The Social Network beat all newcomers to top the box office for the second weekend in a row. Falling a modest 31% in its second outing, the critically-lauded film sold another $15.5 million in tickets to build its cumulative earnings to $46.1 million.
  • In so-so openings, Warner Bros.' romantic comedy Life as We Know It -- starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel -- earned an estimated $14.6 million to place second. Disney's Secretariat was third with $12.6 million.
  • The only other large release, Rogue Pictures' Wes Craven-penned and –helmed 3D horror pic My Soul to Take scared up a disappointing $6.9 million for fifth place.
  • Collectively, the pre-Columbus Day weekend's top 10 movies rang up $77.3 million, or almost 17% less than top performers in a comparable frame last year. (Though a federal holiday, Columbus Day isn't considered part of the box-office weekend, which remains a three-day session.)
  • All figures are industry estimates. Final weekend figures will be released on Monday.
