In a weekend where the biggest releases were a reboot and a remake of two classic 80′s movies, a futuristic robot fighting movie held the top spot. Real Steel held on to the top spot for the second strait week, bringing in over $16 million over the weekend. Paramount’s remake of the Kevin Bacon dance flick Footloose just missed the top spot by about $200,000. The remake of The Thing debuted in third, bringing in a disappointing $8.7 million.
The Big Year, the bird watching comedy starring a dream trio (Jack Black, Owen Wilson & Steve Martin), bombed and debuted in ninth place ($3.3m).
