    Not so fast, The Last Exorcism. It looks like the top prize for this weekend’s box office goes to Takers.

     
    Early projections of this weekend’s ticket sales put The Last Exorcism in first place with $20,366,613. But a more thorough tally showed that Takers took the #1 spot this weekend.

     
    The action-packed heist film, starring T.I., Idris Elba, Chris Brown and Michael Ealy snuck into the top slot by grossing $20,512,304 opening weekend. That’s not bad considering that it was showing on at least 600 fewer screens than its competitors.
     
    With Takers sitting pretty at #1 and The Last Exorcism stewing in second place, that meant The Expendables lost its firm grip on being box office king after two weeks at the top. It came in at #3 with more than $9.5 million in ticket sales.


     
    Eat Pray Love and The Other Guys rounded out the top 5 this weekend.
