Box Score: The Avengers sunk Battleship

Universal saved the prophetic line "You sunk my Battleship!" for itself as Battleship [BTSHP] opened a distant second with an estimated $25.4 million, less than half of The Avengers [AVNGR] in first place with $55.1 million.  The Marvel superheroes stand at $457.1 million after three weekends.  Battleship failed to appeal to young moviegoers as 66% of the audience was over the age of 25, while 57% were male.

The Dictator [DICTR] debuted in third place at $17.4 million, and $24.5 million since opening on Wednesday.  The R-rated comedy attracted an audience that was 65% male and 56% under the age of 25.  

In its second weekend, Dark Shadows [DRKSH] tumbled 57% to $12.8 million.

What to Expect When You're Expecting [WTEXP] bombed with just $10.5 million for the fifth spot.

Expanding to 354 theaters in its third weekend, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel [TBEMH] bagged sixth at $3.3 million.
