Though the trades admit the weekend was weak overall, what the hell were the chances that Disturbia (review) would be able to come in at number one again this weekend?
Apparently pretty damned good since that’s exactly what happened. In its third week of release, Disturbia managed to beat out newcomers The Invisible (review), the Nick Cage starrer Next, WWE Films’ The Condemned (review) and Kickin’ it Old Skool, which certainly deserved to do badly but no one expected to hit outside the top ten, to make it to number one for the third straight weekend.
So to date Disturbia has managed to take home $52 million in three weeks, more than doubling its budget. Wow. I guess I need to get out there and finally see the damn thing, eh? Though I’m sure everything will change this weekend when a little something called Spider-Man 3 opens, it sure was nice to see a member of our genre do so well for so long.
