WOW: ‘The American’ takes the top spot at the Box Office over ‘Machete’ and ‘Takers’

We don’t usually report about box office news here but this one is so shocking and mind-blowing that it warrants coverage.  According to Box Office Mojo and THR, the new George Clooney art-house thriller The American opened number one at the box office to take the Labor Day weekend.  While it only made $12.9 million, it beat out the heavily marketed Machete and Takers, which was the number one film last weekend.  The American actually opened on Wednesday in 2500 theatres without a substantial marketing budget.  It has been extremely divisive, with some critics loving it and others hating it.  Still big news nonetheless.
