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.
This weekend at the box office had a little bit of a surprise at the top. I don't think anyone was surprised by which movie earned the top spit, but rather how much it earned. Hotel Transylvania was the big winner bringing in over $40 million. A new record for the last weekend of September. From BoxOfficeMojo.com:
1 Hotel Transylvania $43,000,000
2 Looper $21,200,000
3 End of Watch $8,000,000
4 Trouble With the Curve $7,530,000
5 House At the End of the Street $7,154,000

That is quite a bit of money. Especially when you look at how poor ticket sales have been lately. It just goes to show that you can't go wrong with an animated movie that appeals to children as well as adults. I'm about to go watch Hotel in theaters and I don't even have any kids.
