Tyler Perry's "The Family That Preys" didn't win the top spot in the weekend box office derby, but it did score in the Top 3.
The quirky comedy "Burn After Reading" starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt was the No. 1 release over the weekend, earning $19.4 million just ahead of "Preys'" $18 million. Perry's flick, which stars Alfre Woodard, Sanaa Lathan, Rochmond Dunbar, Kathy Bates, Robin Givens, Taraji P. Henson, Cole Hauser and Perry, is the actor/writer/director's first film featuring a multi-cultural cast.
Coming in third was "Righteous Kill," a crime drama starring Oscar winners Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino, along with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. It pulled in $16.5 million. "The Women," a weak chick flick remake came in fourth with $10.1 million.
