It was a photo-finish and in the end. The initial showings had to be reveversed. It looked like Rainforest's Takers had narrowly lost the weekend box office battle to The Last Exorcism by a hair (well, if you count 300 Gs as a hair).
However, upon further review: http://boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=2903&p=.htm
Takers actually took it in a healthy late-summer weekend at the box-office.
Of course, local sentiments were pulling for the Rainforest Film to do well and it looks like their No. 1 streak continues.
Congratulations to them for that feat.
