Jennifer Lawrence, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena
The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
It was another slow weekend at the box office, but that doesn't mean there wasn't any excitement. Two new releases, House at the End of the Street and End of Watch, were very close to being number 1. And a third new release, Trouble With the Curve wasn't too far behind in third.
1 End of Watch $13,000,000
2 House at the End of The Street $13,000,000
3 Trouble with the Curve $12,720,000
4 Finding Nemo (3D) $9,446,000
5 Resident Evil: Retribution $6,700,000

I really thought End of Watch would blow all the others out of the water over the weekend. I guess that goes to show what I know. Then again, it did play on 300 less screens than House at the End of the Street and 500 less than Trouble With the Curve. I may have been right if End of Watch had played on more screens. I was a bit surprised by how well Trouble with the Curve did, I guess the movie going public still loves Clint Eastwood.

Michael Pena and America Ferrera
America Ferrera shared this picture via twitter of herself with Michael Pena. From
"Today is our first day of CHAVEZ rehearsal! Here's a pic of me and Mike Pena- aka Cesar and Helen Chavez! http://say.ly/OKo1HEE"
The biopic of United Farm Workers' founder Cesar Chavez was written by Keir Pearson (Hotel Rwanda) and will be directed by Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien). Pena will be playing Cesar while America will play his wife Helen Chavez. Also joining the cast is Jacob Vargas playing his brother Richard Chavez and Rosario Dawson playing the role of Civil Rights Activist Dolores Huerta. I can't wait to see some pictures once they get on set.
