The Rite Tops Box Office Weekend Ahead of Oscar Push

Anthony Hopkins' religious experience, The Rite, conjured up about $15 million this weekend as it lead the pack at the box office.

Meanwhile, the box office also received a slight boost since the Academy Awards announced their nominations this past week. So... films like The King's Speech and True Grit gained a little ground this weekend, and others like Black Swan and The Fighter are still holding strong. 127 Hours, reopened to a wide release with its new Oscar buzz, and managed to climb back into the top 15 with about $2 million, helping it make some of its $18 million budget back.
