Box Office Roundup: October 1-3, 2010

After a mega marketing campaign, David Fincher’s The Social Network took the top spot at the Box Office this weekend, challenge-free. The film opened on 2,771 screens and earned a respectable $23 million. While the Facebook movie was busy pulling down solid numbers, the weekends two big horror releases went largely ignored. Christian Alvart’s Case 39 earned a feeble $5.35 million after hitting 2,211 screens across the country for a seventh place debut at the Box Office. Let Me In landed on 2,020 screens and followed at number eight, earning just $5.3 million.

Holding steady at number two this weekend was the animated Warner Bros picture Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. The family friendly picture took home another $10.8 million to bring it’s two week total to $30 million. Last week’s front runner Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps fell to number three, earning another $10.1 million, to push it’s two week take to just over $35.8 million.

Ben Affleck’s The Town continues to earn the adoration of fans as it drew another $10 million in ticket sales. After three weeks release The Town has earned $64.3 million, nearly doubling it‘s production budget. Screen Gems’ romantic comedy Easy A pulled down another $7 million; after three weeks Easy A has earned just over $42 million.
