  • Rock of Ages – $15 Million
  • Snow White and the Huntsman – $13.8 Million
  • That’s my boy – $13 Million
  • The Avengers – $10 Million
  • The best exotic Marigold Hotel – $8.8 Million
  • Moonrise Kingdom – $2.2 Million
  • What to expect when you’re expecting – $2.1 Million

As for departures, this weekend also saw big budget releases such as Battleship and the Dictator put out to pasture, as the two films wrapped up their five week stay in the top ten.
