In a reminder that you should never count out a maniac wielding a chainsaw, "Texas Chainsaw 3D" overturned the applecart at the box office this weekend, topping the charts with an estimated $23 million according to Film.com.
That meant that returning hits "Django Unchained" ($20.1 million), "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" ($17.5 million) and "Les Misérables" ($16.1 million) were all bumped down a spot. "Texas Chainsaw's" reign looks to be short lived, though, with "Gangster Squad" and "Zero Dark Thirty" both scheduled to go nationwide next weekend.
