Box Office Breakdown: ‘Texas Chainsaw’ Cuts into Competition

Texas Chainsaw 3D

Despite Oscar-worthy films like Les Miserables, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and Django Unchained still playing in theaters, the $23 million in ticket sales for Texas Chainsaw proves that movie-goers are sometimes just looking for mindless gore fests.

Following the 3D sequel to the classic 1974 horror film, Django Unchained maintained its number two spot with $20 million. Last week's number one film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, fell two spots to $17.5 million while Les Miserables fell one spot from last week to number four with $16.1 million. Billy Crystal's family comedy Parental Guidance also fell one spot to number five with $10.1 million.
