Box Score: Contagion takes over first place.



After three weeks of lackluster new releases,  the thriller Contagion [CONTG] finally broke out and grossed an estimated $23.1 million to knock off The Help from the top spot.   An all-star ensemble cast help the viral pandemic film drew an audience that was 80% over the age of 25.

The Help still finished second with a robust $8.7 million.   The drama has banked $137.1 million in five weeks.

Warrior [WARIR] debuted in third place with a disappointing $5.6 million.  Despite strong reviews, the MMA fighting sports drama did not appeal to the mainstream audience.

Coming off a strong holiday weekend pefromance, The Debt [TDEBT] declined 51% to $4.9 million in its second session.  The spy thriller has already earned $22.0 million. 

The weekend's third wide release, Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star [BTBAS] bombed completely.  The comedy tallied just $1.45 million to finished outside the top 12.
