Box-Office Oracle: Oct. 9 - Oct. 11, 2009

#1 movie predicted correctly: 1 Week in a Row 1. Couples Retreat It really should win going away, nothing is being released wide against it. All you need to know about this weekend is that Fame still has the most theaters of any film. Ouch. Perhaps the theaters have started running infomercials instead. Estimate: $24.0... Read more »
