Colombiana [CLMBA] finished second at $10.3 million.  Rather than attracting the young male crowd, the female assassin appealed to older women as the audience was 57% female, and 65% over the age of 25.

Don't be Afraid of the Dark [AFRAD] took the third spot with $8.7 million. The horror film connected with females under the age of 25.

In its fourth weekend, Rise of the Planet of the Apes [RSAPE] grossed another $8.7 million to up its total to $148.5 million.
