Leave it to the vampires!

Apparently, even the animated ones are MASSIVE money-makers!

That's right, the Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez-voiced Hotel Transylvania broke box office records for the month of September by pulling in $43 million during its premiere weekend, which also made it the highest-grossing flick since The Dark Knight Rises!

Meanwhile, Joseph Gordon Levitt recovered from his last flick, Premium Rush, and its weak opening with Looper, which came in second at $21.2 million!

Not too shabby, considering it was only MADE for $30 million!

And even though it's only been released in 335 theaters, Anna Kendrick's Pitch Perfect pulled in $5.2 million, which averages to $15,560 per screen!

AH-Mazing! And so well-deserved!

Here's hoping that the buzz propels it to the top of the list when it gets released wide next weekend!

And ch-ch-check out the full top box office ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Hotel Transylvania, $43 million
Looper, $21.2 million
End of Watch, $8 million
Trouble With the Curve, $7.5 million
House at the End of the Street, $7.2 million
Pitch Perfect, $5.2 million
Finding Nemo, $4.1 million
Resident Evil: Retribution, $3 million
The Master, $2.7 million
Won't Back Down, $2.7 million

    I wanted to see Pitch Perfect this weekend, but I opted for The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which was also on limited release this weekend (and was fantastic, by the way).

    Looper is the best movie of 2012.

    It's one of the few movies that I hope does well at the box office… if you haven't seen it, go see it now.

    Looper is a box-office flop.

    A shame that DREDD 3-D isn't doing better in the US. I saw the movie on Thursday, and it kicked ass!

    Too bad that the only good movies with few exceptions come out between Thanksgiving and New Years (so many on Xmas day the last year or two it was incredible and last year did not have a siingle movie I wanted to see).
