Did we just get another pitiful weekend for movies? Yes, indeed we did. This week, Ben Affleck’s, Argo, was #1 at the box office with only 12mil dollars. This is pretty pathetic numbers-wise, but pretty great for Affleck, who really does deserve to be top dog for once. Cloud Atlas was expected to be the top-grossing film, but ended up a dismal #3 position with only 9.5mil. Given that Cloud Atlas probably cost 100 times that much money to make; that’s pretty horrible. What else is bad, is that Silent Hill: Revelation 3D came out and it made 8mil, with the #5 position.

Next week, it should be no surprise that Wreck-It-Ralph becomes #1. The movie looks hilarious and showcases every video game character ever, so I’m down.
