Thriller "The Possession" keeps grip on box office

Horror movie "The Possession" kept its hold on the box office title over the weekend with 9.5 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales, according to studio estimates on Sunday (September 09). In a slow weekend, the story about a young girl possessed by a demon came in ahead of Prohibition-era crime drama "Lawless," which grabbed 6 million during its second weekend in theaters. "Lawless" stars Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy as bootlegging brothers. In third place, new romantic thriller "The Words," starring Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana, earned 5 million from Friday through Sunday. South Korean movie "Pieta", an ultra-violent story of a loan shark confronted by a mysterious woman claiming to be his mother, won the Golden Lion award for best picture at the Venice film festival on Saturday (September 8). The victory will prove popular at the festival, where the movie was one of the hot favorites to scoop the top prize from among 18 main competition films. Singer Mariah Carey was among those honored over the weekend at the BMI Urban Awards in Beverly Hills. Carey received the BMI Icon award for her successful and influential songwriting career.
