Scor

"Shutter Island" sold $22.2 million worth of tickets across the United States and Canada during the three days beginning Friday, taking its 10-day haul to $75.1 million, distributor Paramount Pictures said.

"Cop Out," which stars Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as a pair of New York City cops, opened at No. 2 with $18.6 million, Warner Bros. Pictures said. Overture Films' conspiracy thriller, "The Crazies," an update of a 1973 George Romero picture, followed with $16.5 million. Both films had been targeting openings in the low- to mid-teen millions.

Another strong weekend for Scorsese and company. 

Both COP OUT and THE CRAZIES did what they could; not a bad haul considering both films didn't cost their respective studios the family farm. Really no surprises here: The box-office went exactly as expected this weekend (just like the gold medal hockey game...).
