US Box Office Top 10 – 09-11/03

Nothing could topple The Lorax off the top spot despite it making nearly half the amount it did last week and also one of the most expensive films of the year challenging it.

3 new films went into this weeks top 10, first off going in at a low 6 was live action comedy from Dreamworks starring Eddie Murphy A Thousand Words, doing better by going in at number 4 even though it got a F from cinemascore (pointless site) was Silent House, finally though going in at number 2 and bombing at the box office is John Carter (you can’t say Of Mars).

10 – This Means War – $3.600.000 – $46.700.000

9 – Journey 2: The Mysterious Island – $3.600.000 – $90.600.000

New Releases – A bit pointless this week as there is only 1 new film of note release and that’s 21 Jump Street starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.

Trailer: Silent House

Trapped inside her family’s lakeside retreat, a young woman descends into madness.

First Impression: A remake of a very unknown Spanish film this see’s Elizabeth Olsen (the youngest of the olsen sisters) cementing herself as a indie actress to look out for in 2012 as she also has another movie that i can’t wait for coming out called Martha Marcy May Marlene.  This looks really tense and if it fully sticks to the original then it’s one to watch out for

A little fact for you this and the original is shot on one continuous shot to give a 88 minute film that is done in one go
