(AllHipHop News) Despite early weekend box office estimates reported Monday morning (August 30), Takers has actually edged out The Last Exorcism as the highest-grossing film for the weekend ending August 29, AllHipHop.com has confirmed.
Takers raked in an impressive $20.5 million, beating it’s rival opening film by just shy of $200,000. The independently-produced crime drama originally drew attention for its diverse ensemble cast.
“It’s really an incredible testament to the power of the people,” Rainforest Films co-founder Will Packer told AllHipHop.com. “Hollywood expected us to do closer to $10 million since we were smaller and on far less screens.”
