411 Box Office Report: Texas Chainsaw 3D Slashes Its Way to #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.06.2013





Leatherface put an end to Bilbo Baggins' reign at the box office as Texas Chainsaw 3D opened in the top spot this weekend. The horror film, which is intended as a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 original, brought in $23 million on the strength of a strong Friday for #1. The movie averaged $8,666 from 2,654 theaters; its opening is right around the $28 million that the 2003 reboot and the $18 million that the 2006 prequel did. The budget was $20 million

Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained stayed even at #2. The film brought in $20.1 million in its second weekend, a very good drop of just 33%. The film has now brought in $106.4 million with a budget of $100 million, and looks destined to be Tarantino's highest-grossing film (Inglourious Basterds holds the position right now with $120 million).

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey finally fell to Earth in its fourth week, dropping two spots to #3. The fantasy epic brought in $17.5 million for the weekend to bring its domestic gross to $263.8 million and its worldwide gross to $777.2 million. It now sits at #6 among 2012 films in both domestic and worldwide box office numbers. The budget is not known.

Coming in at #4 was Les Miserables. The film brought in $16.1 million, down 41% from its opening weekend. That's about average for musicals. The film has a total domestic gross of $103.6 million and a worldwide gross of $170.7 million from a budget of $61 million.

Parental Guidance was down one spot to #4 with $10.1 million in its second weekend. The Billy Crystal/Bette Midler comedy held on fairly well for its genre, with a drop of just 30%. The film has a total gross so far of $52.8 million domestically and $59.5 million worldwide from a budget of $25 million.

Jack Reacher was likewise down a spot from last week, finishing at #6 with $9.3 million in its third weekend. The movie has now grossed $64.8 million domestically and $120.4 million worldwide from a budget of $60 million.

Judd Apatow's This is 40 continued the trend of one-spot slides, down to #7 in its third week with $8.6 million. The sorta-sequel to Knocked Up has a total gross of $54.5 million; it had a budget of $35 million.

Lincoln was down one rung to #8 in its ninth week with $5.3 million. The Steven Spielberg-directed historical biopic has now brought in $143.9 million on a $65 million budget.

The Guilt Trip fell a spot to #9 in its fourth weekend with $4.5 million. The Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand road trip comedy now has a total of $31.2 million from a budget of $40 million.

Finally, Matt Damon's Promised Land hit the top 10 upon its first week of wide release. The film jumped from fifteen theaters to 1,676 and brought in $4.3 million, an average of $2,573. The film now has a two-weekend total of $4.7 million from a $15 million budget.

The weekend box office tally was $148.2 million, up 6.2% from last year's $139.5 million gross that was led by The Devil Inside's $33.7 million opening.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
