April 22nd, 2013 - Graham Eley

1. Oblivion (Universal) UPI $38.2m (NE)
2. 42 (Warner Bros-Legendary) $18m ($54.1m) (1)
3. The Croods (DreamWorks Animation-Fox) Fox Int’l $9.5m ($154.9m) (3)
4. Scary Movie 5 (Dimension Films/TWC) $6.3m ($22.9m) (2)
5. G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Paramount-MGM) PPI $5.8m ($111.2m) (4)

 

As the only wide opener, Joseph Kosinski’s ‘Oblivion’ was always going to win the North American weekend box office but its $38.2m tally was far higher than pre-release projections.  The sc-fi adventure, starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman, came into the session on the back of a flying start at the international market last weekend but had to overcome a disappointing ‘B-‘ CinemaScore from domestic audiences.

 

Last weekend’s No. 1, ’42’, grossed a further $18m for an impressive hold in second place.  The Jackie Robinson biopic now stands at $54.1m after benefiting from strong word of mouth.

 

DreamWorks’ ‘The Croods’ took advantage of being the only family animation currently in the market and returned $9.5m for another solid weekend.  It was enough for the prehistoric adventure to cross the $150m milestone .

 

Derek Cianfrance’s ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’, starring Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, grossed a decent $4.7m from 1,542 sites.  Focus had expanded the crime drama from 514 theatres, taking its running total to $11.4m.

 

Youssef Delara’s & Michael D. Olmos’ ‘Filly Brown’ made a mark on the speciality market with a $7,250 per theatre average in 188 locations.  It features the late Jenni Rivera in her only film role.propranolol generic costbuy inderal lacheapest inderalonline inderalbuy propranolol canadapropranolol generic forinderal online uk
