Hollywood News: Weekend Box Office Recap

The dog story "Marley & Me" dropped 33% from its opening weekend to keep first place and made an additional $24 million.

The next six films in the top ten were in the same positions last weekend.

Slumdog Millionaire jumped three places to make it into the top ten, improving their box office take by 10% and making $4.7 million. Not bad for a film thats only on 612 screens.
