Burn After Reading Fires Up the Box Office


Four new films took the top spots this past weekend: The Coen brothers’ Burn After Reading reigned supreme, grossing $19.4 million. Tyler Perry’s latest flick, The Family That Preys, was a close second with $18 million. Righteous Kill, the only non-comedy in the top four, came in third with $16.5 million, while number four went to remake The Women with $10 million. The Dark Knight was finally knocked out of the top five but managed to keep an impressive hold on the charts, making $4 million and coming in at number seven. Last week’s king Bangkok Dangerous sank down to the number eight spot with only $2.4 million. Next week’s roster of new films includes My Best Friend’s Girl, Ghost Town and Lakeview Terrace.
