    It's nice to see a good ol fashioned horror movie kick every other movies ass at the box office. Closest we've came to that in awhile was 28 Days Later (I think it got #4)

    It'll probably stay #1 because the only other high profile movie opening Friday is Jackie Chan's Medallion.

    THIS COULD BE A GODSEND!!!!! If it does really good at the boxoffice, then horror movies will comeback in a bigger way.

    Horror movies have been doing very well at the box office this last year. Back in October THE RING became the word of mouth hit of the year, and FD 2, 28 DAYS LATER were both very profitable hits. With FVSJ lighting it up though, the slasher film should experience a more traditional revival, not the kind of post-modern one that SCREAM paved the way for. Bring it on! :banana:

    Horror movie should do go as long as they don't get any rap stars in them.

    Good to see it make money, can only be good for getting more horror movies on the big screen. Still to see it as my local cinema still hasn't got it, might go and see Tomb Raider 2 instead:cry:

    F Vs. J : $48 Million in 3,000+ theaters (currently 3014 to be exact)

    28 Days Later : $43 Million in under 1,000 theaters (currently 336 to be exact)


    It's a terrible and meaningless comparison to make between a film that gets nationwide release in the U.S. and another that gets limited release.

    Well, 28 days later was a very cheap film, too.

    'Freddy Vs. Jason' Remains Top Flick

    By DAVID GERMAIN
    .c The Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - A weak batch of new movies made easy prey for "Freddy vs. Jason,'' which took in $13.45 million to remain the No. 1 weekend flick, according to studio estimates Sunday.

    "Freddy vs. Jason,'' a blood feud between the villains of "A Nightmare on Elm Street'' and "Friday the 13th,'' was the first movie to retain the top spot for two straight weekends since "X2: X-Men United'' in early May.

    The weekend haul for "Freddy vs. Jason'' raised its 10-day total to $61.5 million.

    Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at North American theaters, according to Exhibitor Relations Co. Inc. Final figures will be released Monday.

    1. "Freddy vs. Jason,'' $13.45 million.
    2. "S.W.A.T.'' $10.8 million.
    3 (tie). "Freaky Friday,'' $9.4 million.
    3 (tie). "Open Range,'' $9.4 million.
    5. "The Medallion,'' $8.2 million.
    6. "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,'' $7.3 million.
    7. "Seabiscuit,'' $6.3 million.
    8. "Uptown Girls,'' $5.6 million
    9. "American Wedding,'' $5.58 million.
    10. "My Boss's Daughter,'' $5 million.

    64% is a pretty big fall for FVSJ, but still, the number is impressive. It should close with around 75-80 million, which is fantastic. It is great to see these 80's icons tearing up the charts.
