Weekend Box-Office: MEAN GIRLS and THE BEEKEPER Maintain Dominance As I.S.S. Tanks

Weekend Box Office Mean Girls The Beekeeper

"Mean Girls" and "The Beekeeper" continue to occupy the top spots at the box-office in an otherwise quiet weekend. The only new wide release, the sci-fi thriller I.S.S." failed to make an impression.

Read more about the weekend box-office after the jump.

"Mean Girls" finished its sophomore weekend in first place with $11.7 million, down 59% from its debut. The film has now earned $50 million after 10 days, and adds another $16.2 million from overseas markets. That brings the worldwide total to $66.2 million against a $36 million budget.

The R-rated Jason Statham action thriller "The Beekeeper" is also holding in second place with $8.4 million in its second weekend, falling 49%, which is pretty decent for this genre. The film has now grossed a total of $31.1 million in North America and $44.2 million overseas. That's 75.3 mllion worldwide against a budget of $34 million.

"Wonka" is doing remarkably well in its sixth week, finishing in third place with $6.4 million, a drop of just 24%. After 38 days in theaters it has earned $187.1 million domestically and another $344.6 million overseas. Worldwide total adds up to $531.7 million against a budget of $125 million.

The R-rated romantic comedy "Anyone But You" turned out to be a sleeper hit. The film is holding in fourth place with $5.4 million, falling a soft 24%. After five weeks it has raked in $64.2 million. Overseas it adds another $36 million for a global tally of $100.2 million. The film cost only $25 million to produce.

The Top 5 is rounded out by Illumination's "Migration" with $5.3 million. In its fifth frame, the film only dropped 15%. The domestic total has now reached $94.6 million. Overseas it raked in $96.9 million, and the worldwide cum is now at $191.6 million against a budget of $72 million.

Bleecker Street's sci-fi thriller "I.S.S." only managed a #7 debut, grossing $3 million from 2,518 theaters. The film's only saving grace is that it reportedly cost only $13 million to produce. However, even that milestone seems far out of reach with such a terrible start. The film received mixed reviews from critics (62% on Rotten Tomatoes), but a terrible reception from moviegoers ("C-" CinemaScore).
