SECRETARIAT AT THE BOXOFFICE

Big Red slipped to sixth as the Halloween weekend brought out the latest entry in the popular “Saw” series. Saw 3D opened with $22.5 million followed by week 2 for Paranormal Activity 2 ($16.5 million), Red ($10.8 million), Jackass 3-D ($8.4 million), Hereafter ($6.3 million) and Secretariat ($5.0 million).

Secretariat did slip past old rival The Social Network which dropped to seventh with a weekend take of $4.7 million. Secretariat has now grossed just over $44 million.
Sunday night on 60 Minutes, Andy Rooney (whose parents live in Balston Spa, NY – one town away from Saratoga) gave the film a good review.
