Social Network still liked at box office

The Social Network

The Social Network , aka the Facebook Movie as directed by David Fincher, may just have 500 million friends after all.

For the second week in a row (after its debut last week), the website-inspired flick came top of the pile at the US box office, grossing a further $15.5m.

Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel came close to trumping that, though, their poorly-reviewed Life As We Know it beating the odds to open in second place ($14.6m). Must be those posters of Duhamel in his pants that are to blame.

Sports drama The Secretariat opened in third with $12.6, while the visually sumptuous owl epic Legend Of The Guardians came in fourth ($7m). Final new opener My Soul To Take , courtesy of Wes Craven, came in fifth ($6.9m).

The rest of the chart consisted of holdovers from last week, with The Town in sixth place ($6.3), Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps dropping from third to seventh ($4.6m), Easy A downgrading from fifth to eighth ($4.2m) and Case 39 re-numerating from seventh to ninth ($2.6m).

Julia Roberts’ You Again rounded out the charts in tenth place with $2.4m. Meanwhile, Let Me In exited the top ten entirely, slipping from eighth to eleventh with just $2.4m. Poor Matt Reeves.
