THE EXPENDABLES 2 took in a total of $28 million over the past three days, knocking THE BOURNE LEGACY out of the top spot from last week. Granted, that’s about $6 million less than what the original made during its opening weekend, but something tells me Sly isn’t complaining.
As for BOURNE, the fourth entry took in an estimated $17.1 million, bringing its worldwide total to $97.7 million dollars and giving it the number two spot.
Not too far behind in the number three spot was the new stopmotion animated feature PARANORMAN, which took in $14.1 million. Rounding out the top five was the Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis comedy THE CAMPAIGN, which brought in another $13.1 million, and Whitney Houston’s final film, SPARKLE, which brought in $12 million on a $14 million budget.
Other worthy weekend notes: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is expected to reach $900 million worldwide this week, and Disney’s BRAVE became the 11th Pixar film to pass the $400 million plateau.
