1. " Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D," $27.7 million.
2. "Takers," $6.1 million.
3. "The American," $5.9 million.
4. "Machete," $4.2 million.
5. "Going the Distance," $3.8 million.
6. "The Other Guys," $3.6 million.
7. "The Last Exorcism," $3.5 million.
8. "The Expendables," $3.3 million.
9. "Inception," $3 million.
10. "Eat Pray Love ," $2.9 million.

Those are the ticket sales from this weekend in the US and Canada, and as you can see Resident Evil totally blows away Takers by over $20 million! I don't believe there's been any other game-based movie that's hit #1 in it's opening release, or at least opened with such a huge gap between 1st and 2nd. Granted, I haven't seen the movie myself yet, but I do plan to probably this friday depending on showtimes and my schedule.  Maybe Resident Evil got lucky.  Maybe because there's really no big name films that came out that same week, it lucked out to catch the #1 spot.  Then again if Inception came out this, or last week it probably would've shadowed over Resident Evil easily.

There was nothing else coming out this weekend an Takers has been out for two weeks already. add in 3-D prices and you've got a bigger margin difference. September is also normally a dumping ground for movies that wouldn't do good any other time of year. So its easy for RE to come in a make some money.
