As expected, Where the Wild Things Are is the run-away winner at the box office this weekend.  It brought in an estimated $32.5 million. Law Abiding Citizen with Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler grossed a respectable $21.2 million for second place.  But the real winner for this weekend and perhaps the whole of 2009 is the third place flick, Paranormal Activity.  Shot in 2006 for a mere $15,000 with a hand-held camera, it increased its tally by $20.1 million as word of the thriller spreads and prints get into more theaters.  Fourth place went to Vince Vaughn's Couples Retreat which earned $17.9 million.  The Stepfather had fifth place with $12.3 million.
