‘Elysium’ leads openers during crowded box office

August 10th, 2013 - Graham Eley

Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’ led the pack of four wide openers at the North America box office after grossing $11.2m on Friday but its tally was still a tad below expectations.  The sci-fi drama, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, which received a ‘B’ CinemaScore from first night audiences, should finish the three days on a weekend high of $30.5m.


The R-rated Jennifer Aniston vehicle, ‘We’re the Millers’, grossed a further $8.5m on Friday, taking the crime comedy to an early $18.5m since Wednesday’s launch.  It received an encouraging ‘A-‘ CinemaScore and remains on pace for a strong $35m five-day opening haul.


Disney’s 3D ‘Cars’ spin-off, ‘Planes’, came in third on Friday after earning $8.1m on its debut.  But with family audiences turning out on Saturday and Sunday combined with strong word of mouth following an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore, it should exceed expectations over the weekend, finishing on $24m.


‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ took $4.5m on Friday in line with market predictions.  The family adventure should take $15m during the weekend, leaving it on a solid $25m since arriving on Wednesday.fluoxetine 40 mg capsulecan you buy fluoxetine over the counter fluoxetine for social anxietyfluoxetine 20 mg buy online prozac liquid formfluoxetine buy online uk fluoxetine 20 mg cap
