The weekend saw a number of big films debut, all attempting to unseat current kings and queens of the box office. But as usual, only one could claim the top spot, bringing in more cash for its hungry studios, so lets have a look at who grabbed the top spot this week.
The Hunger Games continued to control the rankings, earning another $61.1 million over the weekend, preventing Sam Worthington and his mullet from seizing the top spot, in Wrath of the Titans, which debuted with a $34.2 million haul.
Mirror Mirror also lagged behind in it’s sickeningly sweet debut, reaching the third spot with a $19 million opening, unseating 21 Jump Street which slipped to a $15 million fourth place, while The Lorax finally lost some ground to the fifth position, with another $8 million earning over the weekend.
John Carter tenaciously hangs in at the sixth position, bringing in another $2 million, While Ewan MacGregor fished in a seventh place finish for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which made a $1.2 million splash, ahead of Act of Valour which still clung in at eighth place for a $1 million extraction.
Eddie Murphy’s A Thousand Words dropped yet again, earning an underwhelming $915 000 in total, while not even a Wrestlemania weekend could save the Rock and Journey 2, from a last place finish of $835 ooo in the tenth spot.
