Even in a disappointing time of the year for the box office, one tried and true rule remains intact: Adam Sandler knows how to bring people out to the theater.
His new computer animated comedy, "Hotel Transylvania," broke September records, taking in $43 million in its debut week. That's the highest debut ever for the month, a record previously held by Reese Witherspoon and her 2002 rom-com, "Sweet Home Alabama."
Rian Johnson's "Looper" opened with a respectable $21.2 million off of a $30 million budget, a modest sum for a sci-fi thriller. The film also received a nice boost from a simultaneous open in China, the country that co-produced "Looper."
