BARAfter weeks of lackluster box office performances, and new movies struggling to make it even into the top 5, the box office reports from this past weekend show a much happier tale. All four of the movies that opened this weekend (in more than a thousand cinemas) appeared in the top four and all earned over $10 million. A much better weekend for the box office, considering last week’s top earner managed only $7.7 million.

Taking the top spot was Burn After Reading, starring George Clooney, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, and John Malkovich coming in with $19.4 million. Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys took second spot close behind Burn, with $18 million.

Third spot went to the movie I was anticipating for this weekend, the crime thriller starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, Righteous Kill, coming in with $16.5 million.

Fourth spot went to the comedy film The Women, with a cast of women so big it’s… baffling. With $10 million on opening weekend, it’s not bad. But having to pay the bills for Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Carrie Fisher, Bette Midler, and Candice Bergen, you better hope they make some more money soon.

None of the rest of the top 10 managed to raise over $4.3 million on the weekend, but Tropic Thunder and TDK are still in there, adding a bit more cash here and there to their growing accounts.

As always, thanks to Box Office Buzz for weekly studio estimates.
