Evidently, Some People Did Indeed Want an 'Evil Dead' Remake
Your weekend box office:
1. Evil Dead - $26 million. So, according to Evil Dead tradition, now there has to be a sequel that's basically a remake of the remake?
2. G.I. Joe: Retaliation - $21.1 million, another solid week for the burgeoning film genre "Now The Rock is in this?"
3. The Croods - $21.1 million. The caveman movie beat the dinosaur movie. Modern kids are stupid.
4. Jurassic Park 3D - $18.3 million, enough to nearly pay for the 3D conversion of just Sam Neill's ascot.
5. Olympus Has Fallen - $10 million, topping Tyler Perry's Temptation to become the week's favored histrionic threat to American institutions.
