'Contagion' Tops Box Office

Contagion took the top spot at the box office this weekend!

The star studded action thriller, featuring Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Marion Cotillard, brought in $23.1 million.

Second place went to The Help, which still had a strong week and took second place with $8.7 million.

Also released this weekend were Warrior, which Variety reports finished with a lower than expected $5.6 million, and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, which only brought in $1.5 million.

    Chose Warrior over Contagion and a good choiceon my part. I do not care for boxing, but this movie was great. The acting was much better that what is being done by the established actors. If people would go out of their box and see movies that may not be topics they care to see, they would be surprised at the great movies that are out. Example: The Rabbit Hole — tender topic but a great movie. Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhardt did a fabulous job. The Fighter — again boxing, but a great movie.

    JJ, you listed five of the six faces on the poster. Would it really have been too difficult to acknowledge Laurence Fishburne, too? He is just as accomplished as his co-stars.

    I saw and I need to share my opinion with you. I love Matt Damon, he’s a very good actor but the story of this movie is boring and very predictable. Plus, Gwyneth Paltrow is not good actress. She’s just ok for red carpet photos and have good posture image but for playing a role, she’s very bad. Seriously, she need to be model or something but not actress because on screen she’s not talentuous!

    totally disappointed with the movie. great cast but to me it seemed like the film was a result of the writer and/or the director’s ramblings.
