'Raiders of the Lost Ark' Outperforms Box-Office Whipper-Snappers

How bad a weekend was it at the box office? Really bad -- as in the lowest since the week after 9/11, And so bad, the 31-year-old "Raiders of the Lost Ark" outperformed everything else in wide release.

With about $68 million in grosses, the weekend is the weakest since the Sept. 21-23 weekend in 2001, when the total was just under $59.7 millon

With the No 1 film, "Possession," taking in just $9.5 million over the three days, it's the first time since 2008 that no film cracked the $10 million mark.
