Expendables 2 Wins Box Office, Cosmopolis Impresses

by at . Comments

The Expendables 2 blasted its way to the top of the box office this weekend, but Robert Pattinson also had a few thousand reasons to smile.

While the Sylvester Stallone-penned action flick earned nearly $30 million and easily out-garnered The Bourne Legacy for the number-one ranking, Pattinson's Cosmopolis - his first movie since news of the Kristen Stewart affair broke - grossed $72,000 at just three theaters.

That gave Cosmopolis the weekend's biggest per-screen average. So take that, D.B. Sweeney!

Sparkle - which featured Whitney Houston in her final big screen performance - landed in fifth place. But it sported the Top 10's best per-theater average after The Expendables 2.

  1. The Expendables 2, $28.8 million
  2. The Bourne Legacy, $17 million
  3. ParaNorman, $14 million
  4. The Campaign, $13.4 million
  5. Sparkle, $12 million
  6. The Dark Knight Rises, $11.1 million

Yahhh!! ...and Swiney thinks that he did the right moves! His statement is very insulting to the Stewarts. Jules Stewart should not send him invites when K11 opens. He is a pig...a very old pig!
