Vin Diesel's Riddick topped the movie box office this weekend as the fall season got underway, grossing a solid $18.7 million in its first week of release.

The weekend after Labor Day is always sluggish in terms of moviegoing. Riddick helped drive revenue up 24 percent over the same weekend a year ago.

"Face it, this is never a great weekend. I was hoping Riddick would get to $20 million, but this is a great result," said Universal's distribution chief Nikki Rocco.

Riddick opens in 22 more international markets this weekend, including the U.K. and Hong Kong, where the three-quel is expected to perform well.

Lee Daniels' The Butler continues to do strong business as it heads into its fourth outing, coming in No. 2 and grossing $8.9 million ($91.9 million total).

Perhaps this will comfort Robert Pattinson.

The actor, who is allegedly furious that he was passed over for Christian Grey in favor of Charlie Hunnam, has signed on for Life.

The film will be directed by Anton Corbijn and tell the tale of a real-life friendship between James Dean (to be played by Dane DeHaan) and Pattinson's Dennis Stock.

Stock was a young photographer who worked for Life Magazine and got close to the famous big screen star back in the day when assigned to shoot him for a 1955 spread.

Look for the movie to chronicle his journey with Dean as the acquaintances travel across the country together. Life is scheduled to begin shooting in early 2014, but no release date has been announced yet.

Pattinson, meanwhile, is busy these days making out with Mia Wasikowska wrapping up filming on Maps to the Stars.

With the considerable backlash surrounding the Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting, should producers be concerned that fans will lose passion for the project?

To say that readers weren't wowed en masse by Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey would be putting it mildly.

THG polling suggests fewer than 30 percent of respondents are excited about the two actors chosen for the adaptation of EL James' erotic novel.

It's not just indifference, either. Many are full-on livid over it.

Tens of thousands have even gone so far as to petition for a new Christian and Ana, specifically Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel in the sexy lead roles.
