This time of the year, the awkward limbo between summer blockbusters and fall award bait, is always particularly slow at the box office with winners taking in significantly less than usual, but this past weekend still managed to confound most analysts.
No clear winner emerged from the pack of three new films at the top of the box office, "End of Watch," "House at the End of the Street," "Trouble with the Curve." By the end of the weekend, "End of Watch" and "House at the End of the Street" pulled ahead in a slight lead over "Trouble with the Curve," but both films ended up with approximately $13 million.
The other newcomer, "Dredd 3D," opened in a disappointing sixth place, taking in $6.3 million.
