New Friday The 13th Movie Makes History
This Valentines day weekend people chose blood and guts over love and romance, can’t say im that suprised since everyone knows V-day is just a trade mark holiday made by various corporations…. but let’s save that blog for another day.
The all new remake “Friday the 13th” brought in over 42 million in its opening weekend which set a new record for the highest opening weekend mark for a horror film, knocking off former number one horror movie “The Grudge” which stars Sarah Michellle Gellar.
Ironically debuting on Friday the 13th, 2009 the movie goes back to where it all began in 1980 “Camp Crystal Lake” where people just don’t care what the locals tell them about the condemned camp because they are here to party! and soon enough they run into a not so young boy anymore named Jason Vorhees and guess what? Hes not looking to play hockey… Directed by Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and produced by the famous Michael Bay you won’t find yourself disappointed with this slasher remake.
This is now one of the most storied and famous franchises in history coming up with a staggering 10 Sequels where Jason has found himself in Hell and even space (what a life).
Before Jason made his way onto the big screen the top movie belonged to “He’s Just Not That Into You,”which made a very respectable $19.6 million. Other top grossing films included
- “Taken,” $19.3 million. ( Which I highly recommend seeing )
- “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” $15.4 million.
- “Coraline,” $15.3 million.
- “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” $11.7 million.
- “The International,” $10 million.
- “The Pink Panther 2,” $9 million.
