'Takers' overtakes 'The Last Exorcism' for box office No. 1

About those reports that The Last Exorcism was the top film at the box office this weekend? Never mind! In a nail-biter of a finish between two movies no one will likely remember a month from now, Takers ended up besting Exorcism once the revised studio numbers were released. Takers’ take of $20.5 million puts it just ahead of The Last Exorcism’s $20.4 million, whereas yesterday’s estimates had Exorcism ahead by $300,000.
