The Final Destination debuted as the top movie of the Aug. 28 weekend, taking in an estimated $28.3 million, the Associated Press reported. Turns out the much-hyped horror face-off with Rob Zombie's Halloween II wasn't much of a contest.
Final Destination took over the top spot from Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt's World War II saga Inglourious Basterds, which slipped to second place with $20 million. The film raised its total to $73.8 million after 10 days in theaters.
Rob Zombie's Halloween II, meanwhile, opened in third place with $17.4 million.
