Top three: Where the Wild Things Are: $32.5 million; Law Abiding Citizen: $21 million; Paranormal Activity: $20 million. Unbelievably, Where the Wild Things Are did $2.5 million less than Couples Retreat did last weekend. When it comes to the visions of Spike Jonze and Jon Favreau/Vince Vaughn, respectively, America has spoken. [Box Office Mojo]
