Box Office Totals - Horror at the Box Office
There were no new entries in to the thriller or horror genre in wide release this week. The only real entry I was paying attention to was Crank 2: High Voltage which surprisingly only brought in $6.5 million in its first weekend. Which is a little strange as its first flick developed a big cult following on video. Course, as with most Jason Statham movies it will probably do big business on video. 17 Again won the weekend with $24 million. Yuck. State of Play with Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck took 2nd with $14 million. Fast and Furious had another solid take of $12.6 million raising its US take to $136 million. And worldwide take to a massive $227 million. The Knowing had a $3.4 million take raising its total to $73.6 million in the US and $98 million worldwide. Will definitely break the $100 million mark shortly. The Haunting in Connecticut broke the famed $50 million dollar mark with a $3.1 million take. Its now taken $51 million which is definitely a hit in the horror world. Last House on the Left has now taken in over $32 million. Also a solid horror hit for the year. With Friday the 13th remaining the big winner so far this year.
