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
