Thoughts:
Looks like the Oscar weekend didn't have too much impact on the box office this week. Tyler Perry's new movie "Madea Goes to Jail", dominated the box office with an impressive weekend opening of $41 million. The film has become Tyler Perry's highest grosser and should continue to do well in the coming weeks. I still haven't seen any Tyler Perry movies and I don't think I plan on doing so for a long while. Alot of people said his films aren't great or funny so I'm going to stay away from them for awhile.

Coraline moved up some spots to come in at number 2. The stop-motion animated flick from Focus Features grossed an estimated $11.4 million with a total of $53 million. I'm really surprised it jumped back in the top 3 and I'm glad more people are experiencing this wonderful film. Fox's Taken hasn't changed and still held the number 3 spot with a good $11 million. The film is already at $95 million and should cross the $100 million spot as soon as next week. Impressive numbers for a film that's been out internationally for awhile. The romantic comedy "He's Just Not That Into You", fell two spots and took in $8 million over the weekend. The film now stands at $70 million and still has a decent chance at taking in a $100 million before its theatrical run is over.

The Oscar winner for Best Picture "Slumdog Millionaire", continued to do well in theaters and grossed an estimated $8 million which is slightly up from last week. Fox Searchlight opened the film in more theaters last week and with the Best Picture win, I can see the film bringing in more money. Expect the film to pass the $100 million sweet spot next week. The horror remake of Friday the 13th, took a serious plunge this week and only grossed $7 million. This is very disappointing for the film considering it opened with $40 million last week. I knew the film would drop hard this week since the reviews and word of mouth weren't good, but I was expecting a drop this huge. I can see the film exiting theaters with around $65 million in total.

Confessions of a Shopaholic and Paul Blart: Mall Cop came in at number 7 and 8 respectively. Confessions is starting to slow down and is going to need some strong legs if it wants to reach $50 million at the least. Mall Cop already has a total of $121 million which is more than enough for a profit. The film should start to slow down next week and should finish with a tally of $135 million. New opener from Sony this week was Fired Up which grossed $6 million. Sony's other film "The International", rounded the top 10 with a mear $4 million. I expect the bank thriller to finish with $27 million when all is said and done.

It's a shame for Friday the 13th, the quality for the film really talk by itself and kick it ass so hard from the champ position last week. And congratulation to both "Taken" and "Coraline" that still going strong with their B.O.
