Well, I bet a lot of you didn’t see this one coming! During the run up to the release of Texas Chainsaw 3D, I heard a slew of negativity against the film, but judging by these numbers it appears as if a lot of people wanted to see if there was any fuel left in the old tank as it beat the competition this past Friday.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Texas Chainsaw 3D came in at no.1 at the box-office beating out such mainstream films as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Django Unchained and even Les Miserables.
The gross so far for the film is $10.2M, and it looks as if it will win the weekend overall with an expected gross of $20 million to $22 million.
No too bad for a dude running around waving a chainsaw, right?
Whether you liked the film or not, its pretty awesome to have a genre beating out some pretty epic mainstream films. Let us know below what you thought of the film and whether or not we should all go and see it?
