Weekly Box Office Wrap January 28-30 2011

There was a little strange movement in the past weekend box office. Two new films jumped into the top 3 and an oldie jumped back in to number 10. Warner Brothers new release The Rite, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins, took possession of the top spot with $14,789,393 in 2,985 theaters with an average of $4,955 per location. The remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson flick The Mechanic, released by CBS and starring the rugged Jason Statham, put the hit out on the number three spot. Since it was a fairly slow weekend at the movies, it pulled in only $11,422,006 in 2,703 theaters averaging $4,226 per theater. Surprisingly, The Dilemma and Yogi Bear are still in the top ten. Perhaps the amount of theatres they are still in can account for this? One can only hope.

The remaining new releases for the weekend are not in the top ten, but a couple were close.
