WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Megamind tops the chart with about 47.7 million, just a tad under the projected 50 million. Animated 3-D films seem to opening a bit softer than their live action equivalents, but have shown legs; Despicable Me is still raking in cash overseas. Megamind will hold those 3-D screens (and ticket premiums) until Tangled arrives on Nov. 24. Due Date places with 33 million, a tad over the projected 30 million -- but will need a few weekends to recoup its 68 million production budget.Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls... shows with 20.1 million -- a bit below his average, but not much below, once you account for the seriousness of the subject matter. And with a 21 million budget, this will be yet another profitable movie for Tyler. The leggy Red drops a mere 17 percent to the fourth slot with 8.9 million and a 71.8 million on a 58 million budget. This one likely won't break 100 million in the US, but 90 million seems doable. Rounding out the Top Five, last week's champ, Saw 3-D, which drops 64 percent and makes another 8.2 million, for a 38.8 million total on a 20 million budget. Below the fold, Paranormal Activity 2 and Jackass 3-D continued to add to their profit margin, while Clint Eatwood's Hereafter is looking like a failure, with a 28 million total against a 50 million budget.
