At least one movie made it out of the weekend alive. Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears A Who!
took the coveted top spot this weekend with an estimated gross of 45m. While film adaptations of the prolific authors works haven't always met the warmest critical reception, Horton Hears A Who
hasn't fallen victim to this trend as the film has received the most respectable reviews of the weekend.
The adolescent fight club movie Never Back Down
took third this weekend, just behind 10,000 BC
, with 8.6m in sales. Hopefully the lukewarm box office performance combined with the abysmal reviews will convince studios of what we already know: movies like this suck.
And lastly, Neil Marshall's post-apocalyptic Doomsday
took in a lowly 4.7m this weekend, putting it just behind The Bank Job
. From the looks of things, this appears to be quite a descent from Neil Marshalls' previous work... The Descent
