The Final Destination Weekend

Well, the 3D gimmick paid off well for The Final Destination as it debuted in first place. Easily beating Rob Zombie's Halloween, which had to settle for third.

Weekend Estimates:
The Final Destination: $28.3 million ($28.3 million total)
Inglourious Basterds: $20 million ($73.8 million total)
Halloween 2: $17.4 million ($17.4 million total)
District 9: $10.7 million ($90.8 million total)
G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra: $8 million ($132. 4 million total)
It's the battle of the macabre this final weekend in August, as two new horror flicks battle it out for the top spot.

Halloween 2
Why it might be a hit: Rob Zombie's first Halloween made about $80 million.
Why it might tank: I didn't even know that Halloween 2 was coming out until this week.

The Final Destination
Why it might be a hit: It's in 3D
Why it might tank: 3D is it's only gimmick.

My Predictions:
The Final Destination: $26 million
Halloween 2: $18 million
Inglourious Basterds: $17 million
District 9: $10 million
G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra: $6 million
