The Christian content “War Room” opened on a low-turnout weekend, built buzz on that and is closing in on the $40 million mark. It should clear that Monday or Tuesday.

“The Visit” opened at over $25 million, for second place and a second life into M. Night Shyamalan’s career. No name cast, modestly spooky, and it hits.
More counter programming — the Spanish language distributor Pantelion has a modest kiddie cartoon hit with “UN GALLO CON MUCHOS HUEVOS,” which cleared $6 million and cracked the top ten. Chicken Little, with a double entendre title?
