Zombieland #1 At the Box Office: Makes Back Budget Opening Weekend!

Meh

Zombieland came out to insane hype and reviews from readers who got into early screenings and it has not really lost any of that hype. On Friday it brought in almost $10million and it finishes the weekend bringing in $25million.

The film was made for $26million so its safe to say that Zombieland has made back the investment and will now be a cash cow for the studio and producers who made it. To that I say good on them. When a studio makes an original movie that caters to us true genre fans and they make money.. it makes me happy. Zombieland started the weekend off by breaking into the Top 10 zombie Films List and landing at #2 bumping long time #2 film Shaun of the Dead.

With over 15 Zombieland Reviews now in it has settled a bit into what I consider is a VERY accurate spot. It now sits at #8 with an overall approval rating of 88% based on 15 reviews. As always submit your own reviews, have your say and be a part of the judgement. As it is Zombieland is a smash hit and one that this zombie fan truly loved. Below are the Top 10 Zombie films as of 5minutes ago taken from our site.

Night of the Living Dead #3. Night of the Living Dead
It's hard to imagine how shocking this film was when it first broke on the film scene in 1968. There's never been anything quite like it, though it's inspired numerous pale imitations. Part of the terror lies in the fact that this...
