Looks like all of the furor/buzz over the release of Captivity did absolutely nothing to help at the box office:

1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix | $77,410,000
2. Transformers | $36,000,000
3. Ratatouille | $18,019,000
4. Live Free or Die Hard | $10,875,000
5. License to Wed | $7,440,000
6. 1408 | $5,010,000
7. Evan Almighty | $4,972,000
8. Knocked Up | $3,653,000
9. Sicko | $2,650,000
10. Ocean’s Thirteen | $1,910,000
11. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer | $1,585,000
12. Captivity | $1,550,000

CNN wonders whether or not the torture genre (see Hostel II) is on its way out.
