Weekend Box Office: Texas Chainsaw Butchers Its Way To New Year Number One image
The New Year started off with a bit of horror, with Texas Chainsaw 3D marking the eighth time the story franchise has been sent to the big screen.

With no other new competition and a modest $23 million opening, the flick took number one, edging out Django Unchained which held onto the number two spot and added $20 million to its now $106 million total. That sets Django on its way to becoming writer/director Tarantino's most lucrative outing yet, topping the $120 million Inglorious Basterds banked in 2009.

After a less than spectacular debut in small release, and following on the heels of mediocre critical review, Matt Damon and John Krasinski's Promised Land expanded wide but barely took in enough to snag last place in the top ten with $4 million.
