Elysium Tops Box office


” Elysium” soars at the North American box office. The latest directorial pic from Neil Blomkamp debuts to an estimated $30.4 million to claim the throne. However, compared to Blomkamp’s ” District 9″ ($37.4 million) which had no A-list cast, this latest one, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, falls short.

“What is troubling is that the addition of bona fide A-list talents … added nothing to the bottom line of Elysium’s box-office potential,” says David Mumpower of Boxofficeprophets.com. Still, it is a great comeback for Damon post-the Jason Bourne series. “Audiences … love seeing Matt Damon vs. the world,” Jeff Bock, vice president of Exhibitor Relations, says.

The box-office shocker of the weekend, however, is ” We’re the Millers”, a Jennifer Aniston comedy which opens to approximately $26.6 million at thesecond place. According to Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo, “an appealing cast” and “a great release date” contribute to its success.

Trailing behind the Warner Bros. comedy is another new entry, ” Planes”. The Disney animation takes the third slot by earning an estimated $22.5 million. ” Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”, meanwhile, debuts at No. 4, taking in approximately $14.6 million.

Dropping to the fifth slot is last week’s champ, ” 2 Guns”. In its second week, the Baltasar Kormakur movie adds another $11.1 million approximately for Universal Pictures.

” Lovelace”, an Amanda Seyfried biopic of porn star-turned-activist Linda Lovelace, opens to a disappointing result, raking in an estimated$184,000.
