Horror film Silent Hill
has screamed to the top of the box office with an opening weekend take of $20.2 million. The unsettling thriller, which stars Radha Mitchell
as a mother searching for her lost daughter in a sinister town, knocked Scary Movie 4
off the top of the new list. The horror spoof comes in at number two with $17 million, taking its 10-day tally to an impressive $67.7 million.
The espionage thriller The Sentinel
also enjoyed a strong opening with a $14.65 million debut weekend, to enter the chart in third place. American Dreamz
, starring Hugh Grant
and Mandy Moore
, fared less well - the comedy debuted in eighth place with a disappointing $3.7 million opening weekend take.
