The action flick "Red" finished out the weekend in third place. The movie, which stars Hollywood veterans Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren and Bruce Willis, made $15 million. The figure bumps the flick's total estimated tally to just over $43 million.
The Clint Eastwood-directed supernatural drama "Hereafter" hit the fourth-place slot. The film, which stars Oscar-winning leading man and screen vet Matt Damon as a psychic grappling with his ability to connect to the afterlife, raked in $12 million.
David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin's smash, dot-com drama "The Social Network," rounded out this weekend's box-office top five.
