BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: ‘Zombieland’ Kills Its Way to the Top with $25 Million

It took Woody Harrelson and his zombie-killing abilities to hold off a forecast of raining meatballs this weekend. Zombieland took the top spot at the box office this weekend, making a killing with an estimated $25 million. The film had the widest release of the weekend (3,036 theaters) and scared up an impressive $8,235 per-screen average. The film already is a profitable one, recouping its $23.6 million production budget back in the first weekend, so we'll have to see how far this zombie comedy can go in its run. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, which took the box office crown for the past two weekends, dipped to second place with an estimated $16.7 million gross.

While there were two other new releases out in semi-wide release, they were both overshadowed by two animated classics in 3D. Toy Story/Toy Story 2 3D came in third place this weekend with an estimated $12.5 million box office take. The 3-D double-feature was released in 1,745 theaters and held a strong $7,163 per-screen average.

BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ Repeats Atop the Box Office

5) Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All by Myself - $4.7

Not even human-like robots or dancing teens could stop last week's animated winner from repeating this week. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs held the top spot for the second week in a row, taking in an estimated $24.6 million in its second week in release. The film still had the widest release of the weekend (3,119 theaters), but the repeat was made even more impressive since the film only dropped a phenomenal 18.8% from its debut weekend.

MovieWeb's 2009 Fall Movie Guide!

Labor Day weekend is coming up, and it's a holiday that marks the end of the summer movie season along with summer itself. All the kids are heading back to the classroom for another dreaded year of school and (for those in L.A. like myself) the weather starts to cool... hopefully. While fall usually isn't seen as a cinematic hotbed, with the blockbuster summer season over, there are still plenty of quality films to check out at the box office. This year we have Megan Fox's possessed body, a sensational animated film and a new zombie adventure. There's a lot more that I'm looking forward to this fall, so here is a comphrehensive look at what you can expect from this fall movie season.

Gamer is a high-concept action thriller set in a near future when gaming and entertainment have evolved into a terrifying new hybrid. Humans control other humans in mass-scale, multi-player online games: people play people...for keeps. Mind-control technology is widespread, and at the heart of the controversial games is its creator, reclusive billionaire Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall). His latest brainchild, the first-person shooter game "Slayers," allows millions to act out their most savage fantasies online in front of a global audience, using real prisoners as avatars with whom they fight to the death.
