This Weekend’s Winners: Three new films (End of Watch, House at the End of the Street, and Trouble With the Curve) were essentially tied for first place with roughly $13 million apiece, though, sadly, it seems to be a race to the bottom: This weekend’s box office is down almost a third (-28.9 percent) from exactly a year ago. Honorable Indie Mention: The Master expanded to almost 800 venues, taking in an estimated $5 million, while The Perks of Being a Wallflower gathered nearly a quarter of a million dollars from just four theaters, making it one of the year's top five best limited releases. This Weekend’s Loser: Despite decidedly un-dreadful reviews, Dredd 3D opened to $6.3 million in sixth place, or about half of what the original Judge Dredd grossed almost two decades ago.How It All Went Down: As one distribution chief deadpanned in an e-mail to Vulture, »
