"The Possession" was the top film at the box office for the second week in a row, as according to Film.com the Jeffrey Deam Morgan horror flick brought in $9.5 million, or roughly the same amount that "The Avengers" earned in its first eight minutes of release.

That was still more than enough to easily top a slumping box office that saw its biggest new release, "The Words," earn only $5 million despite the presence of presumed A-list star Bradley Cooper.

Things should look up with the release of "Finding Nemo 3D" and "Resident Evil: Retribution" next week. But for a full run down of this weeks paltry box office returns, including figures for "The Expendables 2" and "The Dark Knight Rises," head to Film.com.
