Box Score: Resident Evil: Afterlife scores a franchise high opening.

As the only new wide release opening this weekend, Resident Evil: Afterlife [RESE4] easily topped the box office with an estimated $27.7 million.  The addition of 3D helped the fourth film score the best opening in the zombie horror franchise yet.  Though as with previous installments, the legs on the male-targeted sequel will decay quickly.

Sony Screen Gems also held the second spot as Takers [TAKER] grabbed $6.1 million in its thrid weekend.  The heist thriller has hauled an impressive $48.1 million.

Last weekend's upset winner The American [THEAM] stumbled 55% to $5.9 million for the third spot.  Total stands at $28.3 million.

Machete [MCHTE] took an even bigger fall as it dropped 63% to $4.2 million in its second weekend.  Going the Distance [GDIST] followed behind with $3.8 million, a 44% decline from its opening weekend.
