2009-10-05 - At The MoviesIt was zombie weekend at the box office, as the horror comedy “Zombieland” reigned supreme, taking the top spot from last week’s winner “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” as well as new releases “The Invention of Lying” and “Whip It.”

“Zombieland” — which pairs Woody Harrelson with Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin and Emma Stone — raked in $25 million over the weekend.

It is about a band of humans fighting legions of undead — and taking a road trip to a supposedly zombie-free amusement park.

“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” which won the box office for the past two weekends, dropped to #2 this weekend, raking in another $16.7 million. So far, its raised $82.4 million domestically.

In at #3 was the “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2” re-issues in 3D, earning $12.5 million as a double-feature. It’s playing for a limited two-week run, setting the stage for the release of “Toy Story 3” in 3D next year.

Right behind the “Toy Story” films is the new Warner Bros. comedy “The Invention of Lying,” earning just $7.4 million and finishing at #4.

Tied for #6 is Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story,” taking in $4.85 million, after it was expanded nationwide from a limited release a week ago. It’s total is $5.3 million.

According to the Associated Press, the documentary is Moore’s second-best nationwide debut, behind his 2004 sensation “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which had a $23.9 million opening weekend.

The roller-derby tale “Whip It” tied with “Capitalism,” also taking in $4.85 million. The movie casts “Juno” star Ellen Page as a beauty-pageant queen who shifts gears to become a roller-derby star.

Much later down the line is Lionsgate’s basketball documentary “More Than a Game” — which takes you through the high school years of NBA star LeBron James — opening solidly with $196,681 in 14 theaters.

Overall Hollywood revenues came in at $113.4 million, down 4 percent from the same weekend last year.

Next weekend, watch out for new flicks like the Vince Vaughn comedy “Couples Retreat,” and the expansion of Lebron James’ “More Than A Game” into more theaters.
