Jigsaw Lands In The Top Spot

Its opponents might have had star power or heartstring-plucking stories of veterans, but with Halloween on the way, Jigsaw beat the rest at the Stateside box office game. The latest – if belated – sequel for the Saw series earned $16.2 million, according to studio estimates.

The horror, which sees the legacy of Jigsaw come back to haunt some new victims, was made for a budget of $10 million (not counting marketing etc.), but despite the seven-year gap between the last movie and this one, it appears the appetite for the torturous games of the killer is still eager. Last week's champion, Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween slipped to second on $10 million. And Geostorm was shoved to third, making $5.6 million.

In fourth place, fellow horror (this one with more intentional comedy) Happy Death Day took in $5 million, ahead of Blade Runner 2049 on $3.9 million, rounding out the top five.

You have to scan down the charts to sixth to find Thank You For Your Service, which charts the struggles of those returning from war. It earned $3.7 million, ahead of firefighter drama Only The Brave, which has also sought to chronicle heroism. The movie made $3.4 million in seventh. The Foreigner took home $3.2 million in eighth, while the third new arrival of the week, Suburbicon, could only manage $2.8 million for a ninth place launch. Hardly a great result for a movie directed by George Clooney and starring Matt Damon. Finally, box office sensation It finally seemed to be losing some of its power in the face of fresh terror challengers, falling from seventh to 10th for $2.4 million. Still, the scary clown has earned more than $323 million in the States alone.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …
