“The Perfect Guy” Wins Box Office + Weekend’s Full Top 10
The Perfect Guy wooed enough moviegoers this weekend to win the number one spot at the box office. The movie stars Sanaa Lathan as a woman who dumps her commitment-phobic boyfriend (Morris Chestnut) and begins dating the “perfect guy,” played by Michael Ealy. Of course, he’s anything but “perfect,” and is actually more like a psychopath. The romantic thriller, which attracted both men and women alike, earned $26.7 million.
Another new movie, the M. Night Shyamalan thriller The Visit, debuted in second place with $25.7 million. Last week’s unexpected chart-topper, the little-known Christian film War Room, slipped to a distant third with $7.4 million in ticket sales. Coming in fourth and fifth were the Robert Redford film A Walk In The Woods and Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, which earned $4.7 million and $4.2 million, respectively.
Rounding out the top 10 were Straight Outta Compton with $4.1 million in sixth place and No Escape in seventh with $2.9 million. The Transporter Refueled took eighth place with $2.7 million, while 90 Minutes In Heaven secured the ninth position with $2.2 million. Grabbing the last spot was Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos with $2.1 million.
