Friday Box Office: Safe Destination


In the box office derby of righteous kills, 3-D blood spatter trumped Michael Myers yesterday. The Final Destination took the top spot rather easily with $10.9 million, while Halloween II will have to fend off Inglourious Basterds for second place. Meanwhile, despite opening on almost a third of the screens as its competition, Taking Woodstock took a could-be-groovier ninth place.
