Burn After Reading wins weekend in the US

Four movies opened wide in the US last Friday, and all four of them went on to make decent money during the oh-so-critical weekend, ending a seven-week long box-office slump. Burn After Reading, the latest from the acclaimed Coen brothers Ethan and Joel (No Country For Old Men) took the top spot, followed by The Family That Preys, the latest from the incredibly prolific and popular Tyler Perry (Meet The Browns) who apparently made his best film yet…why don’t his films get released overseas? Finishing up the top 5 are the thriller Righteous Kill, the chick flick The Women and the apparently actually good The House Bunny, which is holding up very well in its fourth week of release. Last week’s number one however, Bangkok Dangerous, tumbled down to eighth place.
