Sly Stallone's summer blockbuster The Expendables refused to back down the weekend of August 20. With a $16.5 million pull, The Expendables maintained the top spot and raised its total take so far to $64.9 million.
The Twilight inspired parody Vampires Suck came in at a surprising second, with $12.2 million. Take into account the flick's midweek debut and the film has earned $18.6 million, so far. Apparently, folks are ready to laugh at the Twilight phenom!
Eat Pray Love came in on the heels of Vampires Suck, getting bumped to third. The much-hyped Julia Roberts movie based on the bestseller continues to have middling numbers, bringing in $12 million this past weekend.
A few new releases entered the fray, but none with stunning numbers.
The comedy Lottery Ticket, which stars Bow Wow and Ice Cube, came in fourth with $11.1 million, but this week's other new releases, The Switch, Nanny McPhee Returns and Piranha 3D didn't make the top five.
Piranha 3D tried to take a bite out of fifth place, but was beaten out by The Other Guys and landed in sixth. The Other Guys brought in $10.1 million to Piranha 3D's $10 million. Definitely a close call!
Jennifer Aniston's mug is known for selling magazines, but her draw in the theaters seems to be declining. Her recent summer flick The Bounty Hunter opened at $20.7 million, while 2006's The Break-Up premiered at $39.2 million. Aniston's upcoming sexy and stoner roles may be just what she needs to shake things up.
Inception stays in the game, bringing in $7.6 million for ninth place, and Scott Pilgrim vs the World takes tenth place with $5 million.
Next week introduces an interesting crew of competitors. Takers and The Last Exorcism are set to premiere, but the one to watch is a big return. Having already broken the record as highest-grossing movie in Hollywood history, Avatar comes back to theaters for more.
