Romance in the modern age took the lead this past weekend with He's Just Not That Into You beating out the competition. Taken held strong, dropping only 17% for its second week. Here's the top five.
1. He's Just Not That Into You: $27.7 million
2. Taken: $20.5 million
3. Coraline: $16.8 million
4. The Pink Panther 2: $11.6 million
5. Paul Blart: Mall Cop: $10.9 million


Three new releases this week, highlighting consumerism, evisceration and international intrigue.

Confessions of a Shopaholic
What's It All About:
Isla Fisher is shopping herself into bankruptcy and dreams of working for a prestigious fashion magazine. Irony comes a knockin' when the only job she can get is writing an advice column for a finance magazine.
Why It Might Do Well: This is based on a popular series of books so it has a ready made audience, and Isla Fisher is as adorable as ever.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
The film's guy appeal is limited.
Number of Theaters: 2,400
Prediction: $16 million

Friday the 13th
What's It All About:
The classic slasher series gets reimagined. The machete-wielding hockey mask-wearing Jason Voorhees inflicts his own brand of dismemberment on those who dare trespass on the abandoned remains of Camp Crystal Lake.
Why It Might Do Well: Despite all the grumbling you hear about horror remakes, this is from the guys who redid The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and made $107 million worldwide on a movie that cost less than $10 million to make.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
The Saw Series has really upped the ante in the grossout department, making Jason's shenanigans look quaint by comparison. Can Mrs. Voorhees' little boy adapt to the twenty-first century?
Number of Theaters:
3,000
Prediction: $36 million



The International
What's It All About:
Clive Owen plays an interpol agent investigating corruption at the highest level of the world's largest bank. Naomi Watts also stars.
Why It Might Do Well: The film sports a respectable if not earth shattering 60% at Rottentomatoes.com.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
This may not seem like much, but the title doesn't exactly grab you.
Number of Theaters:
2,300
Prediction:
$12 million
