The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies just continue to keep coming but it appears that there is still a want for them by movie goers, as Texas Chainsaw 3D topped the US Box Office this weekend. And it appears that Trey Songz may have had a big input on the early success of the movie.
Texas Chainsaw 3D was made on a budget of around $8m but, in its opening weekend, the movie managed to take $23m, way above its estimated gross. This saw Texas Chainsaw 3D beat the likes of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Django Unchained and Les Misérables to the top of the US Box Office.
More than half of the audience that went to see Texas Chainsaw 3D were women, who many assume were just there to see Trey Songz topless. Trey swapped his music career for his first attempt at acting and it appears that he has made a very good impression on the female fans.
While Texas Chainsaw 3D took top spot with $23m, Django Unchained was in second with $20.1m and taking its total to $106.4m. The Hobbit was in third place with $17.5m, taking its total to $264m in the US and Les Misérables was third with $16.1m and a US total of $103.6m.
