Winnipeg Free Press - Section D - - ENTERTAINMENT -

A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD OF EN­TER­TAIN­MENT LOS ANGELES — Hol­ly­wood is in photo-fin­ish mode with three new movies bunched up tightly for the No. 1 spot dur­ing a sleepy week­end at the box of­fice.

Stu­dio es­ti­mates Sun­day put two movies in a tie for first­place with $13 mil­lion each: Jake Gyl­len­haal and Michael Pena’s po­lice story End of Watch and Jen­nifer Lawrence’s hor­ror flick House at the End of the Street.

And right in the same ball­park was Clint East­wood and Amy Adams’ base­ball tale Trou­ble with the Curve, which opened with $12.7 mil­lion.

Ac­tual rank­ings will be de­ter­mined to­day as stu­dios re­lease fi­nal num­bers for the week­end.

No mat­ter which movie comes out on top, it was an­other slow week­end for Hol­ly­wood, whose busi­ness has been slug­gish throughout late sum­mer. Rev­enues were down for the fourth­straight week­end, with all three of the top new movies open­ing to mod­est crowds.
