The Adam Sandler/Selena Gomez family film ‘Hotel Transylvania’ premiered at number one with $43 million dollars. The film about Dracula and his 118-year-old daughter, which takes place in a resort for monsters, certainly had a lot of pull at the box office and brought in great numbers for Sony.
One of the best sci-fi thrillers of the year ‘Looper’ came in at number two with $21.2 million dollars. This mind-twisting storyline represented by class A actors such as Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, might jump to number one with some help from those that have seen it.
Last week’s number one ‘End of Watch’ falls to the third spot with $8 million dollars. It’s surprising that this cop thriller has fallen so quickly from the top given all the high praise it has received, however it has been able to earn past its’ production cost.
