The Exorcism of Emily Rose grossed a head-spinning $30.2 million over the weekend to debut atop the box office. It marked the third-biggest September opener in history, behind Sweet Home Alabama and the first Rush Hour. Rounding out the top five were The 40 Year Old Virgin (No. 2 with $7.9 million), Transporter 2 (No. 3 with $7.2 million), The Constant Gardener (No. 4 with $4.8 million) and Red Eye (No. 5 with $4.6 million).
