Silent Hill didn’t break any videogame-to-film curse if the reviews are any indication, but there were still enough curious fans of horror and Konami to put it ahead of the frightfully lucrative Scary Movie series. And speaking of creaky revenants, Michael Douglas makes his return to theaters along with Keifer Sutherland in the political thriller The Sentinel, but people would apparently just rather wait for the next episode of 24.

On the topic of not paying for something that you can get for free, people avoided the bumbling president of American Dreamz, while Jennifer Aniston’s latest shot at non-Friends/tabloid success Friends with Money peeks into the top 10.  

Next week makes us wish summer would just hurry up and get here with the Robin Williams camping comedy RV, the gymnastic flick Stick It, the spelling drama Akeelah and the Bee, and the controversial 9/11 crash movie United 93.
