LOS ANGELES – Fear has trumped romance at the box office over Labor Day weekend.

It came in ahead of Sandra Bullock’s romantic comedy All About Steve, a 20th Century Fox release which debuted in second-place with $11.2 million from Friday to Sunday. Bullock plays a woman who sets out on the road in pursuit of her soul mate.

Among other new movies, Lionsgate’s action tale Gamer debuted at No. 4 with $9 million. The movie stars Gerard Butler in a thriller about real humans controlled by players in lethal games.

Opening at No. 10 with $4.2 million was Miramax’s comedy Extract, starring Jason Bateman as a businessman whose personal life heats up just as he’s trying to sell his flavor-extract company to General Mills.

Editor’s note: At the time of printing, movie theatres and studios had not yet released the four-day weekend estimates for ticket sales and revenue.
