Box Office: 'Resident Evil: Afterlife' wins, movie studios struggle
The weekend after Labor Day is typically slow for new releases. "Resident Evil's" $27.7 million haul amounted to more than the rest of the top five combined.
Notably, "Resident Evil: Afterlife" was released in 3-D, which offers a significant boost to the numbers. In second place is "Takers" with $6.1 million, followed by last week's #1, "The American," which brought in $5.8.
