With 15 million dollars in revenue, The Rite begins less than expected but still arrives at the top of U.S. box office this weekend. This horror film, worn by Anthony Hopkins, would quickly repay its budget of 37 million.
Sex Friends, the romantic comedy that started at the top ranking last week, therefore falls to second place with 13.7 million greenbacks. Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher they already weary viewers? Not really: the film has already accumulated $ 40 million in revenue, about 25 budget.
The Mechanic, action film carried by Jason Statham, starts better planned for CBS Movie: $ 11.5 million of revenue and third in the standings.
The Green Hornet Michel Gondry is just below, also with 11.5 million dollars. In three weeks, this super-heroic comedy has already earned $ 78.8 million.
The speech of a king closes the top 5 with 11.1 million. In 10 weeks, the historical film by Tom Hooper reported 72.2 million greenbacks, and presents itself as the favorite coming Oscars with 12 nominations.
