Box Office: ‘Shutter Island’ Takes #1 Again, ‘Crazies’ Performs Quite Well

For the second week in a row Martin Scorsese’s psychological thriller Shutter Island took the #1 spot at the box office pulling an estimated $22.2 million during the three days beginning Friday, pushing the Leonardo DiCaprio starrer to $75.1 million. We’d like to welcome Overture Films to the genre family as Breck Eisner’s The Crazies redo took the #3 spot to an impressive $16.5 million, a solid return for a genre flick going up against some serious competition (and the Oscars).
