The early estimates for the weekend box office are too close to call, with The Last Exorcism barely ahead of Takers. The two debuts earned $21.3 million and $21 million respectively. With such a small margin, these two could easily switch places on a busy Sunday.
Meanwhile, action-porn The Expendables continued to earn in its third week, grossing another $9.5 million, bringing its total to $82 million, in third place. It finished just ahead of Eat Pray Love which earned another $7 million, $60.7 million total.
Inception in its 7th week finished in 7th, earning $5 million, with $270 million overall domestically. Elsewhere, Avatar: Special Edition earned another insulting $4 million for the Avatar franchise in its debut, outside of the top 10. Avatar has now earned a stupid amount of money, crossing $750m domestically.

As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend.
