Tony Scott's Legacy of Movies + Box Office for The Expendables 2, ParaNorman, Sparkle

It was a slow week at the movies. The take in of the films were quite small compared to the summer releases. This week, The Possession still manages to retain the top spot.

The Possession earned $ 9.5 million this week making its current total to $ 33.3 million. The film already made back twice its production budget. In second place is Lawless which earned an added $ 6 million last week. The star studded film has a total of $ 23.5 million so far and is director John Hillcoat’s biggest film. The latest film to join the list is The Words which stars 2012 Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper. It made $ 5 million on its first week which is not bad given that the film’s budget was only $ 6 million.

The rest on the list are just bumping each other off. The Expendables 2 is slowly getting close to the $ 100 million mark while The Bourne Legacy already passed that. The Dark Knight Rises is at number 9 with a total of $ 437.8 million which a bit far from The Dark Knight’s $ 533.3 million domestic hall. Worldwide, the film has taken the number 10 spot in the global box office from Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. At number 10 is the political documentary 2016 Obama’s America which now has $ 26 million in gross. It is the second highest grossing political documentary. The top belongs to Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 which grossed $ 119.1 million.

This week marks the opening of the fifth instalment in the Resident Evil franchise aptly called Resident Evil: Retribution. Also releasing this week is the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo while The Master and Richard Gere’s Arbitrage will have limited releases. The complete Box Office can be seen below:
