SPECIAL NOTE : This week, the newly crowned top movie, The Purge (Ethan Hawke) scares the movie goers to a storming beginning. From the producer of Paranormal Activity and Sinister, this new release horror movie with wild and bizarre concept proved once again that horror genre is here to stay. How weird is the storyline, you may ask. Check out the following short synopsis of the movie (source: imdb.com) and decide for yourself:
In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity-including murder-becomes legal. The police can't be called. Hospitals suspend help. It's one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking. When an intruder breaks into James Sandin's (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown, he begins a sequence of events that threatens to tear a family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters from whom they hide.
Another cool stats about The Purge is that it was produced with a mere budget of $3 millions and already earned more than 12 folds on its opening week ($36.4 millions). How cool is that?
The other new release, The Internship (Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson) did not do well though. Managed to stay at fourth place with merely $18.1 millions.
