Ben Affleck has made his name more notable as Hollywood director. After his directorial debut "Gone Baby Gone" impressed critics, his follow-up "The Town" does not only garner positive review but also perform well at North American Box Office. On its debut weekend, the movie earns $23.8 million and sits on the first place at the chart.
Right behind "The Town" is "Easy A" which was made with quite a small budget of $8 million. The Emma Stone-starring comedy, which is filled with sex issues, turns out to be profitable as it rakes in $17.7 million since it was released in the U.S. on last Friday.
Another newcomer "Devil", which was produced by M. Night Shyamalan, lands the third spot with $12.3 million revenue. This is surprisingly well reception from audience despite the fact the filmmaker himself has been underestimated following his latest directed flick "The Last Airbender".
"Resident Evil: Afterlife", which ruled domestic chart during Labor Day weekend, has a sloppy second weekend as it only makes an additional $10 million (drops 62.5%) gross and jumps down to the fourth place. Rounding up the top five is family animation "Alpha and Omega" which rakes in $9.1 million from first three days' ticket sales.
