Amid rumblings of mid-August inventory-clearing, no fewer than five new titles hit the multiplexes this weekend. But for most of us there were only two questions that Friday’s box-office results needed to answer: how high could Neill Blomkamp’s “District 9″ climb and how far would Stephen Sommers’ “G.I. Joe” fall? As for the former, the Peter Jackson-produced sci-fi flick parlayed its great word of mouth into a first place finish with over $14 million from 3,049 locations. “Joe” was not so lucky. Last week’s top seed fell a big 68% on Friday to third place behind the maudlin posturing of Eric Bana in “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. Check back tomorrow for full coverage of the rest of this weekend’s new releases.
