Action drama Brooklyn's Finest debuted in distant second spot with $13.5 million in ticket sales, just edging out Scorcese's Shutter Island, which is still showing a lot of staying power. Internationally, it has grossed $130 million in only three weeks of release. Mighty impressive.
The Crazies slips to sixth spot this week, but has actually proven to be a profitable investment for Overture Films with $27 million in earnings to date. Crazy Heart continues to perform very well in ninth spot all based on Jeff Bridges' Oscar buzz. The film has almost surpassed $30 million in earnings, having been made for only $7 million. He'll more than likely take a golden statue home tonight.
