We’re on an ark yo! Noah took top spot this past weekend, beating Divergent into second place with it’s biblical adaptation epic tale of man vs nature. Banking $44 million, Noah may not have made a massive splash, but it did create a strong opening for Russel Crowe after recent flop films failed to ignite the box office. Arnie Scwharzenegger fell foul of some sabotage however, debuting at number seven with $5.3 million. That’s the worst debut yet for a new Arnie film, and way behind flicks such as The Last Stand and Escape Plan.
- Noah – $44 Million
- Divergent – $26.5 Million
- Muppets Most Wanted – $11.3 Million
- Mr Peabody and Sherman – $9.5 Million
- God’s Not Dead – $9 Million
- The Grand Budapest Hotel – $8.8 Million
- Sabotage – $5.3 Million
- Need For Speed – $4.33 Million
- 300: Rise of an Empire – $4.3 Million
- Non-Stop – $4 Million
Top ten departures this week include The Lego Movie and Tyler Perry’s The Single Mom’s Club. I don;t give a toss about the latter, but The Lego Movie has done some awesome business finishing an eight week run with $400 million in the bank from around the world. On the International front, Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened up in several foreign territories. So far, it’s banked $75 million around the world on opening weekend. Expect that result to climb even higher when it opens in US markets.
