The voters have spoken, and talking CG animated guinea pigs are not what they want. The clear winner of this week's Box Office Poll is psych thriller "Orphan," about an adopted girl who seems just a little bit... off. Not "watch her or she might break something" off. More "oh crap, what is she doing with that bloody knife" off. Whatever her problem is, she nabbed 61% of your votes.
The other two big wide releases for the week -- the aforementioned guinea pig-driven family adventure "G-Force" and the Katherine Heigl/Gerard Butler rom-com "The Ugly Truth" -- are pretty much neck-and-neck as we round into the final few hours of this week's poll. The CG feature has a slight edge, with 23% of your votes as compared to 21% for "Ugly."
Only 6% of you are choosing to catch up on an older release, though my guess is that "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" will finish the weekend with a stronger showing than our highly unscientific results might suggest. The results drop off after that, with 3% each for limited release outings ("Shrink," "The Answer Man" and "In the Loop") and staying home with the TV.
That about wraps our poll round-up. Next week is a big one: in addition to Judd Apatow's "Funny People," the family friendly CG animated "Aliens in the Attic" and the gore-nography of "The Collector," we've got the highly anticipated IMAX 3-D opening of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Should be a heated race.
