The Social Network likes the box office

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Sunday, October 3, 2010

With an opening weekend of $23 million dollars, David Fincher's The Social Network emerged as the first financial champion of October's box office. While it's not a killer figure, it's a solid debut for the Facebook movie and will likely keep Mark Zuckerberg out of the media spotlight for a while. Critics in the big cities are eating this picture up, but outside of the newspaper and online circuit is The Social Network really wowing audiences? The second weekend results will soon answer my question.

Zack Snyder's animated Legend of the Guardians held its ground for its second weekend out, adding $10m more to its $30m cume. But let's not forget that this pretty owl movie cost Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow $80 million bucks. That home video market better be good for the Guardians.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps also added another $10.1m to its haul (total: $35m) and so did The Town (total: $64m.)

Easy A is in 5th spot with $7m new, $42m total.

You Again is in sixth place ($5.5m newm $16.4m total.)

Ah, here are the week's other new movies! Case 39, a Renee Zellweger picture, has been sitting on Paramount's shelf for over two years. Now that it's out, and effectively dumped with minimal marketing, a seventh place finish and $5.3 million opening isn't all that bad.

In eighth place comes Let Me In, the remake of the Swedish horror movie Let the Right One In. It had a $5.3 million opening. Maybe they should have called it Don't Remake Me.

#9: Devil. $3.6 million new for a total of $27.4 million after three weeks. This is a cheapo so everything is in the black now for Universal (and M. Night Shyamalan can start to breathe again.)

And finally, the bottom of our list, the tenth place. This weekend it's the animated feature Alpha and Omega, that touching story about a boy wolf and a girl wolf that find true love with each other when separated from their families. Your kids will tolerate it while you go catch a showing of The Social Network or Wall Street 2. (Oh yeah; $3m new for the picture, $19m total.)

Make a note: after 12 weeks of top ten finishes, Inception has now exited the cool crowd and is in 12th spot. It's total accumulated North American gross is $288 million dollars. Internationally the movie's made another $486 million. Christopher Nolan needs to buy more houses.
