Box Office Roundup: September 24-26, 2010

As many critics expected, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps took the top slot at the Box Office this weekend, though the 20th Century Fox piece drew fairly unimpressive number earning just $19 million. The film opened to over 3,500 screens. The Warner Bros. 3D animated Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole met similar distribution numbers, and slid into second place with a $16.3 million take. The weekends other major opener, Buena Vista’s comedy You Again debuted at number 5 on the box office top 10 taking in an underwhelming $8.3 million despite a strong marketing push. To the credit of those involved, You Again was released to a full 1,000 less theaters than it‘s opening counter parts.

Last weeks big winner, Ben Affleck’s second major directorial venture The Town fell to number three earning just over $16 million in ticket sales (for a two week total of $49 million), while (last weeks runner up) Easy A turned in a fourth place showing with it’s $10.7 million take ($32 million over the course of two weeks).
