Box Office Roundup October 8-10, 2010, 'The Social Network' On Top Once Again

It was another impressive weekend for The Social Network, as the film once again topped the box office charts. The David Fincher film took home another $15.5 million in ticket sales, for a two week take of $46 million. The Warner Bros comedy Life As We Know It took the number two slot earning a fair $14.6 million in it’s opening weekend.

The debuting Secretariat also drew a solid $12.6 million to take the number three spot, while Zack Snyder’s animated tale Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole earned another $7 million to hold at the number four slot.

In what could easily be considered a big surprise, Wes Craven’s My Soul To Take seriously underperformed, drawing just $6.9 million to round out the top five. The last two weeks have proven that October doesn’t mean guaranteed success for the horror genre. As a fan, it’s a bit unnerving.
