'Shutter Island' Easily Rules Box Office Again


Leonardo DiCaprio


Getting no strong competition from newcomers 'Cop Out' and 'The Crazies', the Leonardo DiCaprio-starring movie came out as a champion at box office chart in its second week.

"Shutter Island" is not going anywhere from the top spot of North American Box Office. Though it dropped about 45.9% in ticket sales, this Martin Scorsese's thriller won easily on its second weekend, adding an estimated $22.2 million to its domestic cume which now became $75 million after it was released ten days ago.

Following "Shutter Island" were newcomers "Cop Out" and "The Crazies" which sat on the second and third places respectively. The Bruce Willis-starring buddy comedy earned an approximately $18.6 million while the remake of 1973 thriller film of the same title garnered an estimated $16.5 million.

In the meantime, "Avatar", which managed to jump one position to the third last week, had to be back to its old slot. This James Cameron-directed sci-fi secured the fourth place with an additional $14 million in its eleventh week. Meanwhile, the fifth spot belonged to "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" with an estimated $9.8 million gross.
