The Devil Inside Tops Weekend Box Office

by at . Comments

The Devil Inside bested the box office with a $34.5 million debut this weekend.

The performance was the third-biggest ever for a January opener, and enough to knock Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol out of the coveted No. 1 spot.

Hollywood, which saw ticket sales hit a 15-year low last year, is off to a good start in 2012 as ticket sales surged 30 percent over the same weekend in '11.

Though demoted to No. 2, Ghost Protocol held well, coming up with $20.5 million, and hitting the $400 million mark worldwide. Sherlock Holmes was third.

Meryl Streep, meanwhile, was the hottest ticket by a different metric, with The Iron Lady averaging a weekend-best $34,420 at each theater it played in.

Here's a complete look at the weekend's top movies by revenue:

  1. The Devil Inside, $34.5 million
  2. Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol, $20.5 million
  3. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, $14.1 million
  4. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, $11.4 million
  5. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, $9.5 million
  6. War Horse, $8.6 million
  7. We Bought a Zoo, $8.5 million
  8. The Adventures of Tintin, $6.6 million
  9. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, $5.8 million
  10. New Year's Eve, $3.3 million

I saw The Devil Inside this past weekend...freakin' terrible. One of the worst movies I have ever seen, and I've seen a lot of bad movies.
