Real Steel Box Office Winner over Footloose
Hugh Jackman's robot boxing movie REAL STEEL has narrowly fought off competition from new dance remake FOOTLOOSE to make it a second week atop the U.S. box office chart.
Real Steel locked down an extra $16.3 million in ticket sales this week (ends 16 Oct. 2011) to remain at number one, edging out Footloose, starring Kenny Wormald in the part made famous by Kevin Bacon in 1984. It debuted in second place with opening weekend takings of $16.1 million.
Horror reboot The Thing entered the countdown at three, while Steve Martin's comedy The Big Year failed to tickle audiences and opened in ninth place.
