US Box Office

This weekend saw a one year horror surprise beat a 70+ year legend. Saw II (sequel from last year’s Saw) scared The Legend of Zorro to a second place opener. With a minimal budget ($4 million, over its original $1.5 million), horror flick manages to hack off a considerable amount of the total box office. With $30.5 million the saw proves a mightier weapon than Zorro’s sword, opening with a not so legendary $16.5 million.
Light comedy Prime opens at number 3 with $6.4 million (starring Uma Thurman and Meryl Streep), while the fourth spot is for second-week Dreamer: Inspired By A True Story, with $6.3 million. Rounding out the top 5 is Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit with $4.4, now totalling at a worthy $49.7 million.
