The Final Destination

Ticket buyers ended their summer vacations by booking . For the 2nd time in a row, the horror entry topped all entries with a 1st place finish. Thanks to the $15.3 million added to the pot, Warner Bros. saw its sequel rise above the $50 million mark during the Labor Day weekend

pulled in another $15 million and narrowly missed another win of its own. The WWII movie has now raked in over $95 million domestically and given Quentin Tarantino the 2nd best gross of his career. (Pulp Fiction is still the champ.)
