'Social Network' Liked Enough to Take Second Weekend

David Fincher's The Social Network dropped a reasonable 31% in its second weekend, adding another $15.5 million to its tally.  In a weak weekend at the box office, this was enough for a first place finish.  The film about the early days of popular social networking site Facebook has earned approximately $46 million to date against a $50 million budget.

In second place was newcomer Life As We Know It, starring Katherine Heigl.  The film received poor reviews, but has scored good word of mouth with its target audience.  Its opening weekend was worth $14.6 million against a budget of $38 million.

Third place was another new film, Disney's Secretariat, about the legendary racehorse.  The $35 million film brought in $12.6 million over its first three days.

The fourth slot at the box office went to a hold over, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole dropped 36% in its third weekend to $7 million.  The $80 million film has grossed just under $40 million at the domestic box office so far.

Finally, fifth place went to horror master Wes Craven's My Soul to Take.  The film suffered mediocre reviews, an R rating, and a crowded 3-D marketplace to round up a disappointing $6.9 million opening. Even with a modest production budget of $25 million, the Universal Studios film will have to rely on international grosses and home video to turn a profit.
