Zombieland reigns at the box office

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Sunday, October 4, 2009

Opening weekend for Columbia Pictures' Zombieland proved to be a scary one for its competitors. Preliminary estimates from theaters indicate that the horror-comedy pulled in approximately $25 million dollars, recouping its budget in its first three days.

Since it's now October and audiences are starting to look for scary movies to get into the Halloween spirit, it's likely that Zombieland will top out at around $80 million.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs has tumbled down a spot to second but with its new take of $16 million, just passed the $80m total mark. It's performing very well, falling slowly down the box office standings. If Planet 51, the next CG family high concept movie in the release pipeline, doesn't have the same zing as Meatballs, the latter could have longer legs into the holiday season and top out around $120m.

Disney's Toy Story / Toy Story 2 3D duo likely got the audience this weekend that's already seen Meatballs. With $12.5m in ticket sales, Disney's smiling for the small win.

At #4 and #5 it's The Invention of Lying and Surrogates, both neck-and-neck with $7.3m each. It's the same story with #6 and #7, Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story and Drew Barrymore's grrl flick Whip It, each hovering around the other with $4.8m. The Fame remake is falling fast and in its two weeks has only pulled in $16m. The Informant! is doing better at eighth spot ($3.8m this weekend, $26.5m total.) And the Jennifer Aniston romance-comedy Love Happens is standing with $18.9m, just about outta there.

Next week: Where the Wild Things Are arrives.

I've only caught a piece of the Zombieland trailer. I can't help but feel its riding on the coattails of Planet Terror. It seemed to have a bit of the same flavour. Either way, I'm not sure you can find a better genre than Zombie! Can't wait to see this one.
