Box Office Booty: 2007-09-04

by Paul William Tenny

It's finally September and I've fallen behind. Sorry about that, but it's a growing process. There were no big surprises this past weekend at the box office: Rob Zombie's unnecessary remake of Halloween grossed $26.4 million on a budget of about $20m. They'll easily make back their budget, which if case you didn't know, was entirely the point. Nobody has been clamoring for a remake of Halloween and it didn't make enough to show up on the radar as a hit, so this was nothing but a vanity project for Zombie.

Must be nice, being rich and famous. You get to do anything you want, including remake perfectly good movies for no good reason, just because you want to.

Here's the top 10, with the full list at the Mojo.

  • *Halloween (2007) ($26.4 million)
  • Superbad ($12.5)
  • *Balls of Fury ($11.3)
  • The Bourne Ultimatum ($10.3)
  • Rush Hour 3 ($8.5)
  • Mr. Bean's Holiday ($5.9)
  • The Nanny Diaries ($5.1)
  • *Death Sentence ($4.2)
  • WAR ($4.1)
  • Stardust ($3)
*New this weekend.
