Box Office Breakdown: Very Small Take for Wes Craven

My Soul to Take

Neither Wes Craven’s name nor 3-D ticket prices could help Universal this weekend.

, which cost an estimated $25 million to produce, earned a scary $6.8 million over the past three days. (That’s a figure that includes ticket sales from 3-D venues.) The movie, which debuted in sixth place, was just one of several horror-ific disappointments this week. Two-week-old Case 39 fell to ninth place while Let Me In dropped completely out of the Top 10.

Romantic comedy raised $14.5 million, about $1 million shy of first place. (The Social Network was tops for the second time in a row.) Despite heavy promotion, Life was Katherine Heigl’s smallest debut since her pre-Knocked Up days.

, the weekend’s other new wide release, galloped into third place with $12.7 million. Seabiscuit, in comparison, premiered to $20.9 million in 2003.

Box Office Breakdown: Social Network Liked by Audiences

The Social Network

Theatergoers took time away from their personal Facebook accounts this weekend to enjoy some actual entertainment this weekend.

—David Fincher’s film about the creation of that social media site—raised enough friends over the last three days to land the biopic in first place. Network’s $22.4 million outing also gave screenwriter Aaron Sorkin his best opening to date.

’s long-awaited debut barely went noticed. The Renee Zellweger/Bradley Cooper movie, which had been waiting for a release date for over two years, was produced for an estimated $27 million. Unfortunately, it only earned back $5.4 million of that from domestic audiences.

Meanwhile, also struggled to find a warm welcome. The vampire thriller – a remake of Sweden’s Let the Right One In—took in only $5.1 million, enough for an 8th place finish.

Renee Zellweger Involved in Car Crash

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Romance, Comedy, Celeb News,

Renee Zellweger at the scene of her car accidentRenee Zellweger ran into a bit of car trouble yesterday, having been involved in an accident.

The New In Town actress was involved in an accident in Beverly Hills, but was uninjured in the collision.

Police Lieutenant Tony Lee confirmed, “A green Ford Explorer made an illegal U-turn in front of her silver Mercedes. Ms. Zellweger was not injured, the damage to her car was very minor. She was very polite and sincere.”

The unnamed driver was attempting to leave a parking space when the incident took place, and swapped details with Renee shortly afterward. Lee explained, “The incident will be handled between their insurance companies. Ms. Zellweger requested her car be towed from the scene, and also requested that officers call her a cab.”

Renee’s spokesperson has not issued a statement regarding the accident.

The 40-year-old actress is believed to be dating Bradley Cooper, after the pair were seen enjoying several intimate dates in Barcelona, Spain. However, the actress is staying tight-lipped about the romance, saying, “I won’t talk about it. It leads to nowhere good.”

Renee Zellweger to Return as Bridget Jones

In a movie move that is sure to delight Singletons on both sides of the pond, Texan will reprise her role as British single gal Bridget Jones. She’s sort of the less-glamorous UK version of Carrie Bradshaw - with a flawless English accent and no Manolos.

Once again, the role will require Renee to pack on additional pounds. She has a few months to bulk up before shooting begins near the end of the year. As Jones and Zellweger enter their forties, the Brit’s new mission in life (now that she’s nailed down the trick of maintaining a successful romance) is to have a baby. Perhaps all the padding for the role won’t have to come from Big Macs after all.

Bridget Jones’s Diary was released in 2001. The sequel, The Edge of Reason, appeared in 2004. Both installments featured sparring co-stars (and mega British hotties) Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
