Weekend Box-Office Report: LONE SURVIVOR, THE LEGEND OF HERCULES

lone-survivor-box-office-champ


Peter Berg's true story war actioner "Lone Survivor" provided the biggest surprise of the weekend at the box-office. The film received its wide release this weekend, and, as expected, it went straight to the top. But, what nobody saw coming was that the film would go on to gross $38 million in its first three days of wide release, double the amount that was projected by the studio itself. Far behind, but holding strong in second place is Disney's surprisingly resilient animation project "Frozen", which has earned $15 million this weekend and a total $317 million in the US alone. The worldwide cume of the film now stands at $712 million, the best of any of Walt Disney Animation Studios' projects. The previous record holder for the studio was 2010's "Tangled", which grossed $591 million worldwide.

The week's other new wide release, Renny Harlin's "The Legend of Hercules" is 2014's first major flop. The action epic opened in fourth place with $8.6 million, small change compared to its costly $70 million budget. Bad production values, acting, writing and directing were widely cited by critics as reasons to stay away from this movie, and it seems that audiences agreed.

Last week's "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones" took a steep dive, falling from No.2 to No.9 with a 65% drop at the box-office. The spin-off is, so far, the worst of the franchise as far as earnings go and it looks like the franchise is not ready to break out of its Halloween schedule.

More box-office details and the complete top 10, after the jump.
