The first new release this week "Carrie" a horror movie released in October, could only scare up an estimated $17 million and came in at number three. It seems remakes are not high on the list for moviegoers, even in the month of horror enthusiasm.
Next up is "Escape Plan" featuring action stars Sylvester Stallone (Bullet to the Head) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Last Stand). The two-star action film could only muster up an estimated $9.8 million for its opening weekend.
The worst of the three newcomers "The Fifth Estate" came in last, not even making the Top Five, hitting number eight with an estimated 1.7 million, making it the worst opening for a film in over 1,500 theaters this year.
