3:10 to Yuma Outguns Halloween in Box Office Competition

The Western movie scores big enough to take over the top position from the slasher pic on the weekend box office ended Sunday, September 9, 2007.

Said to be a tough sell these days, Western genre apparently proves otherwise through the great performance "3:10 to Yuma" in theaters during weekend running September 7-9, 2007.

A remake of the 1957 classic, the Lionsgate Films release amazingly surpassed studio's expectation by taking in quite an impressive number of $14.1 million on a historically slow weekend to replace the fright fest "Halloween" as the No.1 movie on the box office.

Though had to slip to number two, the Rob Zombie-directed turned out to still do well in the competition, adding another $9.51 million to raise its ten-day haul to $43.7 million. Former champ "Superbad" trailed with $7.55 million followed by another newcomer "Shoot 'Em Up" and "The Bourne Ultimatum" which managed to pull $5.72 million and $5.67 million, respectively.

Sixth place went to Rogue Pictures' ping-pong comedy "Balls of Fury"for its decent effort to collect $5.65 million in its second round on the list, a tally way above the $4.88 million buddy cop comedy "Rush Hour 3" has garnered this time.

Latest misadventure of British wordless misfit "Mr. Bean's Holiday" finished right behind after making its way to score a fair amount of $3.41 million in ticket sales. Rounding out the top ten of the chart were The Weinstein Company's "The Nanny Diaries" and fantasy flick "Stardust", the former drawing $3.19 million while the latter doing just fine with $1.8 million.
