After the clear number one film, the rest of the top five gets interesting because when the actuals get released any of the films two through four can be flipped around as there is only an incredible $243 K separating them. Currently at number two is the new animated flick, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, which opened to $11,400,000.
At number three is last week’s number two film, The Lucky One. The romance drama starring Zac Efron took in $11,325,000—just $75 K behind the number two film—bringing up its ten-day total to $39,927,000.
Staying strong at number four is The Hunger Games. The film is turning into quite a phenomenon as it took in yet another $11,250,000—yet another $75 K behind the number three film—bringing up its thirty-eight-day total to well over $372 million. The film is actually outperforming Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 2 at the box office over its current thirty-eight-day run, and that’s without the added bonus of 3D.
Rounding out the top five is The Five-Year Engagement. The RomCom starring Jason Segal and Emily Blunt took in $11,157,000 in its opening weekend—$93 K less than the number four film.
