The Expendables Holds Back The Younger Crowd

The Expendables was not -- expendable, that is -- but most of its rivals were. In its second week, Stallone, Schwarzenegger and company topped the box office with an estimated $13.5 million, bringing their movie's domestic gross to $52.3 million. But no other film managed to break $10 million, and three newcomers debuted far down the list. Sony's Premium Rush opened with $6.3 million in seventh place. The $2-million Hit & Run landed in tenth place with $4.68 million, and the Warner Bros. horror flick The Apparition didn't even make it into the top ten, finishing in twelfth place with $2.96 million. Expanding impressively, however, the anti-Obama documentary 2016 Obama's America hauled in $6.24 million, a solid figure for a documentary. Most of the films at the top of the list finished in the same order as they did last week. All, that is, except the musical/drama Sparkle , which fell 64 percent to eleventh place from fifth a week ago.

The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Box Office Mojo 1. The Expendables 2, $13.5 million; 2. The Bourne Legacy , $9.3 million; 3. ParaNorman , $8.55 million; 4. The Campaign , $7.44 million; 5. The Dark Knight Rises , $7.2 million; 6. The Odd Life of Timothy Green , $7.1 million; 7. Premium Rush , $6.3 million; 8. 2016 Obama's America, $6.24 million; 9. Hope Springs , $6 million; 10. Hit & Run , $4.68 million.
