Box Offiice Results: ‘Hostel’ Tortures the Competition

The weekend boxoffice was sheer torture as the bloody Hostel (review #1, #2), a tale of buddies who stumble into a den of violent depravity, debuted at No. 1 with an estimated $20.1 million. Lionsgate’s “Hostel” bumped off the previous weekend’s No. 1 film, Disney’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which came in second with approximately $15.4 million to lift its domestic total to $247.6 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Universal’s King Kong (review #1, #2) was third with roughly $12.5 million, raising its domestic total to $192.5 million. The weekend’s only other new wide release, 20th Century Fox’s Grandma’s Boy, flopped with just about $2.9 million. The comedy from Adam Sandler’s production company stars Allen Covert as a video-game tester forced to move in with his grandmother. And where was Uwe Boll’s BloodRayne (review #1, #2)? According to the Box Office Mojo the film pulled in $500,000, but we are unsure if that’s only Friday or for the whole weekend. Congrats to Lionsgate again! Read the full results here.
