So much for all the new releases this weekend. It was once again Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs which dominated the weekend box office, with all the new releases Surrogates, Fame, Pandorum and all the rest coming up well short.

In fact, it wasn’t even a very close race in the end, with Meatballs running away with it on Saturday and Sunday after a close Friday. Their repeat first-place finish with $24.6 million was only a small drop from their $30 million opening last week, which was the third best September opening of all time behind Sweet Home Alabama and Rush Hour (Which goes to show you what a dead month September usually is at the box office, folks.)

The rundown:

  1. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – $24,600,000
  2. Surrogates – $15,000,000
  3. Fame (2009) – $10,033,000 -
  4. The Informant! – $6,915,000
  5. Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself – $4,750,000
  6. Pandorum – $4,408,000
  7. Love Happens – $4,327,000
  8. Jennifer’s Body – $3,500,000
  9. 9 – $2,832,000
  10. Inglourious Basterds – $2,722,000

In limited releases I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell made $369,000 while Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story made $240,000 from four screens! That’s right, the average was $60,000 for Capitalism: A Love Story! Huge.

I could go on, but my interest in writing about this week’s movies is about the same as your own interest in seeing them: not very much. September can’t end fast enough.
