August 30, 2010 03:18:27 GMT


Paris Hilton's lawyer has warned the media and public not to "judge" the socialite over her arrest on suspicion of possessing cocaine until the matter is resolved in court.

'Last Exorcism' Blocks 'Takers' From Topping Box Office


August 30, 2010 03:07:48 GMT


Two newcomers are competing hard on the top of North American Box Office. With a slightly higher opening gross, "The Last Exorcism" manages to prevent "Takers" from nabbing the first place. The Eli Roth-produced movie about a possessed girl collects $20.4 million, while the crime action thriller rakes in $20.5 million.

"We've had two weeks of films being all stacked up very closely to one another, and that's a really tight margin between these two," Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com, says about the chart in the last two weeks. "But it's sort of a battle in a marketplace that really isn't setting the world on fire."
