Box Office Results · October 23, 2011

Ok, so there was no box office report last week. Not because no one in North America went to the movies, but there has been a bit of technical difficulties over here in SurlyGurl World. But, we started thinking outside the box and bust out some creativity and resourcefulness so you WILL know what did well at the box office this week!!

Let’s get to it! Evidently, moviegoers are already well into the Hallowe’en ‘spirit’ . The 1980’s set prequel about Katie and Kristi’s childhood ghostly encounter scared up one of the best openings this year, and is the best opening for the franchise. Not to mention it was the biggest opening for a horror movie of all time! Nice work PA3! Small budget, giant return, and another sequel that doesn’t completely suck! Congrats!

‘Toby’ apparently scared the shit out of Hugh Jackman and his scrappy lil’ battle bot too, as ‘Real Steel‘ seemingly fled from the top spot, coming in a distant second.

The latest adaptation of ‘The Three Musketeers‘ debuted in the fourth spot with approximately $9M. A far cry from its estimated $75M budget. Yikes! Maybe next time less gadgets and explosions and more spooky bumps in the night…

Unfortunately for the spy spoof ‘Johnny English Reborn‘ the only thing it seemed to scare way was the movie-going public.
