This movie scarred me back when I was a kid. I couldn’t go to sleep because I thought Freddy would attack me. Enough drama, the remake of the 1984 “A Nightmare on Elm Street” sits all alone this weekend.
The closest competitor was the kid friendly “How to Train Your Dragon,” which actually dropped 30% from last week in receipts making a whopping $10.8M. “A Nightmare on Elm Street” sits alone on top of the weekend box office by a wide margin. The nightmare pulled in $32.2M.
To round out the top 5 in theaters this weekend; coming in third place was “Date Night” taking in $7.6M. In fourth was Jennifer Lopez’ “The Back Up Plan”, followed by the comedy “Furry Vengeance” in fifth place.
