The Rite may not currently be up for an Oscar, but it does have an Oscar winner – and a box office win.
Anthony Hopkins’ first wide release since The Wolfman cut No Strings Attached from its top spot this past weekend. The film, which debuted during (another) East Coast weather event, managed to shovel up $14.8 million in ticket sales.
The Mechanic, featuring action star Jason Statham, also found a place in the Top Ten. The film – a remake of a Charles Bronson movie – opened in third place with $11.4 million.
