Weekend Box Office Report: Top Movie Takes No Prisoners

By Bill Wine
PHILADELPHIA (CBS)  —  On a slow weekend at multiplexes, Prisoners broke out on top.
Prisoners, the kidnapping suspense thriller with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, finished first by earning an estimated $21-million in its weekend debut.
The holdover horror sequel, Insidious: Chapter Two, last weekend’s box-office leader, was the runner-up with a total of $15–million.
The Robert De Niro-Michelle Pfeiffer crime comedy, The Family, was third with $7-million.
And the weekend’s other new mainstream release the dance competition drama, Battle of the Year debuted in fifth place with $5-million.
Overall, business was soft, as expected in September, with industry-wide totals pretty much the equivalent of those of a year ago.
