Well, how I'd view that big opening and drop is that there was a lot of buzz, who doesn't want to see what the legacy can spawn for a remake, now while it wasn't horrible like say the NOES remake, it didn't produce any word of mouth to keep it's numbers up from the second week on.

I met her, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and not even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this cow, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.
