The Expendables 2 once again took a machine gun to its box office competitors this weekend, taking in the most money for a second consecutive Friday and Saturday, this time by about $4 million over The Bourne Legacy.
But it was a mostly quiet weekend in Hollywood, with few new films opening and Sylvester Stallone's sequel winning the weekend with a haul of just $13.9 million.
The major movie news instead centered around 2016: Obama’s America, a conservative documentary that cracked the top 10 overall, earning $6.2 million and enjoying an impressive per-theater average of over $5,700.
The flick has now grossed $9.2 million. It ranks first all-time among conservative documentaries.
Look for it to continue to excel in the face of this week's Republican National Convention - but still has space miles to go in order to match Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, which took in $119.2 million in 2004.Here is a look at the top 10:
- The Expendables 2 – $13.5 million
- The Bourne Legacy – $9.3 million
- ParaNorman – $8.6 million
- The Campaign – $7.4 million
- The Dark Knight Rises – $7.2 million
- The Odd Life of Timothy Green – $7.1 million
- Premium Rush – $6.3 million
- 2016: Obama’s America – $6.2 million
- Hope Springs – $6.0 million
- Hit and Run – $4.7 million
