Debuting at #6 was Pitch Perfect ,a movie about a college singing group ,starring Anna Kendrick.Although it opened in limited theaters it managed to make $5.2million ,a solid collection for such a limited opening.The movie has been getting good reviews and is rated at 73%.
But the same couldnt be said for 'Wont Back Down'.The movie made $2.7million in its first week,making it the second worst opening for a wide release movie (opening in more than 2500 screens).The movie has got negative reviews and is rated at 35%.

There are some major movies that will battle for the top spot this week.
Tim Burton's animated movie ,Frankenweenie is said to be a good movie ,with an initial score of 77%.
But my pick of the week ,and potential blockbuster is definitely Taken 2.Liam Neeson returns for the sequel.But just like its predecessor, Taken 2 has got some very negative reviews.Its currently at 8% !But i loved the first part and would certainly like to see if the sequel stands upto the high expectations.
