Weekend Box Office: 04/11/08 – 04/13/08

Believe it or not, some horror film remakes do succeed even though this isn’t one I even plan on seeing. Prom Night may not have Jamie Lee Curtis in it this time around, but it came out at the perfect time of year as high schools get ready for their end of the year dances. Two more new films broke the Top Ten while things remain quiet overall. Check out full numbers inside.
