Tyler Perry's latest mediocrity I Can Do Bad All By Myself demolished the competition this weekend, debuting to $24M to top the box-office charts. The visually delightful (but narratively generic) 9 came in a distant second, taking in only $10.8M in its opening frame. Inglourious Basterds is proving to be a much-needed and resilient winner for Quentin Tarantino and the Weinstein Company ($6.5M | $104.3M), while the renaissance of Sandra Bullock continues with All About Steve ($5.8M | $21.8M).

The Final Destination slipped in its third week ($5.5M | $58.2M), but was able to hold off newcomers Sorority Row ($5.2M) and Whiteout ($5.1M). Sci-fi sleeper District continued to print money ($3.6M | $108.5M), as did Julie & Julia ($3.3M | $85.3M). Meanwhile, Gamer collapsed in its second weekend ($3.1M | $16.1M). Crude led the limited release pack by averaging $16,700 per theater. After that it was No Impact Man ($8,750), The Other Man ($7,075), Walt & El Grupo ($2,100) and Broken Hill ($860).
