'Evil Dead' Remake Tops Weekend Box Office

Evil Dead has topped this weekend’s box office with a gross of $26 million!

According to THR, the remake of Sam Raimi‘s 1981 cult horror story fared better than most scary flicks.

Coming in at number two for the second week in a row was the animated film The Croods, voiced by Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone, earning $21.1 million and bringing its total to $125.8 million – becoming only the second title of 2013 to do so, after Oz the Great and Powerful.

The number three slot went to G.I. Joe: Retaliation, starring Dwayne Johnson, which also grossed $21.1 million after debuting in the No. 1 spot last week.

Rounding out the top five were the 3D re-release of Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park and Gerard Butler‘s Olympus Has Fallen, which made $18.2 million and $10.4 million, respectively.

Meanwhile, The Host, which stars Diane Kruger, Jake Abel, Max Irons, and Saoirse Ronan, brought in $5.2 million in its second week.

At the specialty box office, The Place Beyond the Pines, starring Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, expanded to a total of 30 theaters in its second weekend, grossing $695,000.

    I’m not really surprised that Evil Dead crushed it at the box office. I work at DISH with a few fellow horror fans, and we went to see Evil Dead on opening night. We all loved the movie, but it was so late when we got out that everyone wanted to go home. I wanted more, so I went home and logged on to DISHAnywhere.com and found Army of Darkness! That’s why I love that site; I can log in anytime and tons of my favorite TV shows and movies.
