Texas Chainsaw slays the box office

The new horror movie Texas Chainsaw 3D knocked Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey from its first place spot after three weeks at the top, taking in an estimated $23 million and earning 2.9 stars from Tribute.ca users, while The Hobbit earned an additional $17.5 million in third place and 3.9 out of a possible 5 stars. The spaghetti western Django Unchained, which stars Jamie Foxx as a rescued slave who tries to save his wife (Kerry Washington) from her captor (Leonardo DiCaprio), hung on to second place with $20.1 million and a 4.1 star rating. Not far behind was the critically-acclaimed film adaptation of the stage musical Les Misérables, in fourth with $16.1 million. It’s a popular pick with Tribute.ca users, who gave it an impressive 4.7 stars. Rounding out the top five was Parental Guidance, starring veteran actors Billy Crystal and Bette Midler as grandparents with the task of babysitting their rowdy grandkids. The comedy earned $10.1 million and 4.4 stars.

    And I bet whoever is going to shoot up the next school was enthralled by this one.

    Well, we knew it was going to take something pretty special to knock off THE HOBBIT…

    I see Janice’s point, unfortunately. People with blood lust go to movies like this and sometimes, they want to be part of the killing to feel special. I’d like to see a trend to less gore/murders in films. When did torturing/killing innocent people get to be entertainment?
