Box Office results for the weekend!

This is so far the worst weekend of the year. Movie theaters must have been empty.

"Final Destination" becomes the fifth film this year to remain No. 1 for two weeks in a row and that is only because of the extra money made from the 3-D.

"All About Steve" did fair, but word of mouth should have that film dropping next weekend like a stone. And "Extract", you have to feel bad for Mike Judge.

And "Gamer." What happened there? Man, this entire weekend was just a mess. Only "Inglourious Basterds" is still doing well from the time it was released is because it is actually a very good movie (but so is "District 9," which is hanging in there longer than "Halloween II").

Next weekend has few more films coming out with "Nine" hitting theaters on Wednesday. That might give it a profit boost.
