Box Score: Elysium rises above the rest



In a crowded weekend featuring four new wide releases, Elysium [ELYSM] came out on top with an estimated $30.5 million.  Despite a bigger budget and Matt Damon in the lead, the sci-fi film failed to surpass the debut of director Neil Bomkamp's previous District 9.  Males made up 61% of the audience.

We're the Millers [WEMIL] took a better than expected $26.6 million to open in second place.  The comedy has grossed $38.0 million in its first five days and should enjoy great word of mouth. 

Continuing the trend of underperforming family films, Planes [PLANE] finished third with $22.5 million.  The Cars spin-off was originally produced by DisneyToons as a straight to home video.

Bringing up the rear of the four new films, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters [PJAC2] tallied $14.6 mllion and $23.5 million since opening on Wednesday.

Last weekend's top film 2 Guns rounded out the top five with $11.1 million, down 59% from its debut.  Meanwhile, The Smurfs 2 [SMRF2] declined 46% in its second weekend to $9.5 million.
