The numbers agree: moviegoers love going to the movies to see newly released films!
That’s right: the top 4 movies in this week’s box office chart are all new releases. Elysium won the weekend with $30.4 million. We’re the Millers came in second with $26.5 million. Cars 3: Planes came in third with $22.5 million. Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters came in fourth with $14.6 million.
Movies that were released before this past Friday did not fare as well, pulling up the rear in spots five through ten.
This much is clear: movies coming out later this week stand a good chance of making a lot of money over the coming weekend. Check back here next week for the scoop on that.
