Top Box Office For Nov 5- Nov 7 2010

Megamind opened strong this weekend with $47.6 million, falling in line with industry expectations. The Will Ferrell / Brad Pitt / Tina Fey voiced film was the widest 3D release in history, accounting for 66% of its gross. Due Date opened with $33.5 million to become the biggest R rated  comedy opening in November, beating out Borat. For Colored Girls opened strong for a film of its type, but on the lower end of Tyler Perry’s typical openings – possibly in part due to the fact that the film doesn’t bare his name. It is also the first time Perry hasn’t done an original work. In total the top 3 of the box office fueled the highest grossing movie holiday season in history, up 30% over last year. Red is still holding strong, only losing 17.4%, showing there is still an audience for smart, adult films. Saw 3D took a 63.6% nosedive from it’s opening last week, in line with the rest of the series and the horror genre in general. With a budget of $20 million and a gross of $38 million in 2 weekends, this continues the highly profitable franchise. Paranormal Activity 2 lost 55.8% of its audience in its 3rd week, giving it a $77 million total so far.
