Box office report: 'Texas Chainsaw' massacres competition with $23 million; 'Zero Dark Thirty' shines in limited release

Lionsgate’s Saw franchise may have gone the way of the dodo, but this weekend the studio re-birthed another horror franchise centered on a limb-mangling blade. Texas Chainsaw 3D, a sequel/reboot of the 1974 horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, bowed with a bloody good $23.0 million, making 2013 the second year in a row that a horror film has kicked off the year in first place. The Devil Inside debuted with $33.7 million last January.

Texas Chainsaw 3D started off slower than the 2003 Jessica Biel remake The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which opened with $28.1 million and found $80.6 million total, but it performed better than the 2006 prequel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, which started with $18.5 million and earned $39.5 million overall. Texas Chainsaw 3D will likely finish somewhere between those two predecessors, perhaps with about $50-55 million domestically. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Texas Chainsaw 3D' slashes up bloody good $10.2 million on Friday

Nearly 40 years after the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre entered theaters, Leatherface is back once again for a new reboot/sequel called Texas Chainsaw 3D, which buzzed down the competition on Friday. Texas Chainsaw 3D scored a robust $10.2 million in its first day (well, technically that gross includes Thursday night shows), which easily put it in first place. Like almost all horror movies, though, Texas Chainsaw 3D, which earned a weak “C+” CinemaScore grade, will likely prove remarkably frontloaded over the course of its debut weekend, and it may finish the frame with about $22-23 million, making this the second year in a row — following The Devil Inside‘s $33.7 million bow last January — that a horror movie has kicked off the new year in first place.
