The American Earns $1.6 Million on Wednesday

The American starring George Clooney and Irina Björklund opened early on Wednesday with $1.6 million in ticket sales. The performance was good enough to eek out a win against incumbent champ Takers and its box office nemesis, The Last Exorcism.

Joining The American at the North American box office this weekend is Going the Distance with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, and Robert Rodriguez’ Grindhouse inspired Machete starring Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez.
