The Rite starring Anthony Hopkins possessed the top position at weekend box office. The Rite is a horror film based on a true story.

No one had the expectations for the horror movie ‘The Rite’. The Rite has set a record by collecting $15 million in the opening weekend. The Rite was released on January 28, 2011. With this, one can understand why the Warner Bros has spent $37 million on this film.

’The Rite’ is based on a nonfictions book, inspired by true events and is written by Matthew Baglio, an American journalist. The story revolves round a skeptical seminary student Michael Kovack (Colin O’Donoghue), who attends an exorcism school in Vatican. He meets a Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins) who introduces him to the darker side of the spiritual world.

’No Strings Attached’ starring Aston Kutcher and Natalie Portman, stood at second place, which collected $13.7 million and increased its total to $39.7 million. ‘The Mechanic’ and ‘The Green Hornet’ tied with third spot earning $11.5 million.

Check out the top 10 films at the weekend Box Office:
