Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables 2 topped the box office again for the second-straight weekend with a collection of 13.5 million dollars.
The weekend’s new wide releases were overshadowed by ‘2016: Obama’s America’, which expanded from limited to nationwide release and took in 6.2 million dollars to finish at number eight.
The documentary is a harsh conservative critique of what the country would look like four years from now if President Barack Obama is re-elected, the New York Post reported.
Released by Rocky Mountain Pictures, ‘Obama’s America’ nearly matched the 6.3-million-dollar debut of the number seven, Joseph Gordon-Levitt''s action tale ‘Premium Rush’, a Sony release that played in more than twice as many theatres as the Obama documentary.
The weekend’s other new wide releases opened weakly. Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell’s road-chase comedy ‘Hit and Run’ debuted at number 10 with 4.7 million dollars, and the Warner Bros. fright flick ‘The Apparition’ opened at number 12 with 3 million dollars.
The top 10 movies at the weekend box office were:
The Expendables 2 - 13.5 million dollars
The Bourne Legacy - 9.3 million dollars
ParaNorman - 8.5 million dollars
The Campaign - 7.4 million dollars
The Dark Knight Rises - 7.2 million dollars
The Odd Life of Timothy Green - 7.1 million dollars
Premium Rush - 6.3 million dollars
2016: Obama’s America - 6.2 million dollars
Hope Springs - 6 million dollars
Hit and Run - 4.7 million dollars.
