'End of Watch,' 'House at end of Street,' 'Trouble with Curve' in tight race for No.1 at box office
HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Three new films are in a tight race for the top spot at the box office this weekend.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena's police story "End of Watch" and Jennifer Lawrence's horror flick "House at the End of the Street" each earned $13 million, leaving them tied for first place. Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams' baseball tale "Trouble with the Curve" wasn't far behind with $12.7 million.
Actual rankings will be determined Monday as studios release final numbers for the weekend.
No matter which movie comes out on top, it was another slow weekend for Hollywood, whose business has been sluggish throughout late summer. Revenues were down for the fourth-straight weekend, with all three of the top new movies opening to modest crowds.
The top 10 films of the weekend were:
1 (tie). "End of Watch," $13 million.
1 (tie). "House at the End of the Street," $13 million ($1.5 million international).
3. "Trouble with the Curve," $12.7 million.
4. "Finding Nemo," $9.4 million ($1.3 million international).
5. "Resident Evil: Retribution," $6.7 million ($30.5 million international).
6. "Dredd," $6.3 million ($2.2 million international).
7. "The Master," $5 million.
8. "The Possession," $2.6 million ($1.5 million international).
9. "Lawless," $2.32 million ($1.5 million international).
10. "ParaNorman," $2.3 million ($3 million international).
