Underworld: Awakening Wins Weekend Box Office

by at . Comments

Kate Beckinsale's return to the franchise propelled Underworld: Awakening to a big box office win this weekend. George Lucas' Red Tails came in second in revenue.

Those out to see Kate, who plays leather-clad vampire warrior Selene, kick some serious behind managed helped the film bring in $24.3 million its opening weekend.

Was it worth it, though? Movie Fanatic's Underworld: Awakening review is mixed, but in strictly financial terms, it easily topped Red Tails' $19.4 million haul.

Mark Wahlberg's Contraband grossed $12.2 million, causing it to fall from first to third in the box office. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close pulled in $10.5 million.

Nos. 5-10: Haywire ($9.0 million), Beauty & the Beast 3D ($8.6 million), Joyful Noise ($6.1 million), Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol ($5.5 million), Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows ($4.8 million), The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ($3.8 million).
