The Possession Stays Number One at Weak Box Office

This was a slow weekend at the box office, as no movies managed to gross over $10 million. In fact the highest grossing newcomer, The Words, only managed to make $5 million.  The only bright spot was the re-release of Raiders of the Lost Ark in Imax, which made about $1.7 million from only 267 screens (almost beating The Cold Light of Day's $1.8 million, which is on 1511 screens).

The weekend was so slow, in fact, many analysts believe it may be the worst weekend in a decade... Ouch!
