Box Office Boosts

The Social Network, the movie about the founding of Facebook, led the box office this weekend, as expected. The tie-in edition of the book it was based on, Accidental Billionaires, also rose on Amazon sales rankings. Another recent title about the company, The Facebook Effect, also received a boost.

Even though Let Me In was considered a box office disappointment, it gave the Swedish horror novel, published in hardcover in the US in 2007, a boost to its highest point yet on Amazon sales rankings.

And, despite being in theaters for over seven weeks, the highest-ranking tie-in is still Eat, Pray, Love. It received another boost this weekend; but not as high as it’s opening weekend, when it rose to #2.
