This being Halloween month it does my heart good to see that the walking dead rule the box office. The horror comedy Zombieland took top honors, finally pushing Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs to number two after the animated comedy had enjoyed two weeks at number one. Here's the top five:
1. Zombieland: $24.7 million
2. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: $15.8 million
3. Toy Story / Toy Story 2: $12.5 million
4. Surrogates: $7.2 million
5. The Invention of Lying: $7 million

Just the one film going into wide release this week:

Couples Retreat
What's It All About:
A comedy about four couples heading to a tropical paradise for sun, sand and surf. Unbeknownst to most of them, however, is that participation in the resort's couples therapy is mandatory.
Why It Might Do Well: The cast includes Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, and Kristen Bell, all of whom I have found entertaining at one point or another.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
There are only three reviews posted so far so this isn't very scientific, but Rottentomatoes.com is giving this 0%.
Number of Theaters:
3,000
Prediction:
$22 million
