It was a good weekend for Friday the 13th‘s newest chapter in its seemingly endless series. It opened this weekend with a whopping $42.5 million, the highest grossing opening weekend for a horror movie, ever. Pretty impressive.
The rest of the top five were:
- Friday the 13th
- He’s Just Not That Into You (1st spot last week)
- Taken (2nd spot last week)
- Confessions of a Shopaholic
- Coraline (4th spot last week)
There really wasn’t all that many good movies opening this past weekend, so it’s no wonder the horror movie took top honors. It is surprising, however, that on Valentine’s weekend, that many guys convinced their girlfriends/wives to see a horror movie.
