The Box Office has been looking peaked all summer, and now that it’s fall, it’s not picking up perceptibly.

The early estimates for this weekend put the total box office figure down by at least 10 percent from last year, and down significantly from last week.

The early numbers indicate that “Lakeview Terrace,” with Samuel L. Jackson, will take in $14.5 million.
The Coen Brothers’ farce, “Burn After Reading,” will take in $11.2 million.

That’s it for double digits at the box office. The rest are:

“My Best Friend’s Girl” $8.3 million

“Igor” $7.8 million

“Righteous Kill” and Tyler Perry‘s latest, around $7 million each.

“The Women” from Warner Bros is a real bomb, taking in $5.9 million this week.

Final numbers tomorrow.
