With flicks like Django Unchained and Les Misérables accelerating Oscar season into full swing, we were CERTAINLY not expecting this!
The first week of 2013 has officially come to a close, and with that, comes the surprise news that the biggest money-making movie of the year so far is none other than Texas Chainsaw 3D!
And even MORE surprising?!
According to exit polls for the latest addition to the horror franchise, one in THREE viewers cited Trey Songz making his first appearance in a motion picture as their main incentive for attending!
Sorry, Tarantino! Sorry Anne Hathaway!
And especially sorry to Matt Damon, who's Promised Land went wide and only made $4.3 million from 1,600 screens!
You all just got side-lined for Leather Face!
