Black Snake Moan Whimpers Opening Weekend 

America, what on earth is wrong with you? Black Snake Moan came in 8th during its opening weekend, behind Wild Hogs (middle-age men on motorcycles) at number one and Ghost Rider (middle-age man on motorcycle on fire) at number three. Ghost Rider is in its third week of release.

Black Snake Moan took in a little more than $4 million in its opening weekend, compared to Wild Hog's $38 million and number two film Zodiac's $13 million.

From a story in Reuters: "The studio said [Black Snake Moan] played well in 'sophisticated' markets like Los Angeles and New York, and in key southern cities like Memphis and Atlanta."
