Monday Daily Box Office Rally

067148H1.jpgFirst Place – Takers‘ takes the top spot at the Monday box office with $1.7 million after a photo finish for the weekend with ‘The Last Exorcism’ as the Paul Walker ensemble heist drama enjoys $22.2 million in its savings account.

Second Place – ‘The Last Exorcism‘ scares up a devilish $1.3 million in its fourth day of release against a total of $21.7 million after a roller-coaster ride of a weekend that saw its fortunes rise on Friday and drop on Saturday and Sunday.  The film was reported as number one for the weekend when the estimates were released and became number two with a mere $145,691 between it and the eventual weekend winner ‘Takers.” 

Third Place – ‘The Expendables‘ has earned its tough-guy status with a $915k haul on Monday and a domestic total of $82.9 million after 18 days of release.  The film should eventually become the 13th $100 million movie of the summer

Box Office News Flash: Sony’s ‘The Other Guys‘ should become 12th summer movie to cross $100 million on Tuesday.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, President of Hollywood.com Box Office Paul Dergarabedian loves movies of course, but has a true passion for music, art, photography and architecture. Stanley Kubrick is a God even though like Orson Welles’ 'Citizen Kane, his '2001: A Space Odyssey' is overrated but still brilliant! Little known fact: Paul is a certified car fanatic and was a National Collegiate Driving Champion in the late 80's!
