THE FINAL TAKE:
Overall, the box office was down more than 7 percent versus the same weekend last year, when Hotel Transylvania and Looper (above) opened in the top two spots at the box office. This was a solid, post-summer weekend, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. Were heading into a time where some of the most challenging and best films of the year are going to be released, like Gravity and Runner Runner.
