411 Box Office Report: Evil Dead Rips Into The Top Spot
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.07.2013





Evil Dead claimed #1 at the box office this weekend. The remake of the Sam Raimi horror classic brought in $26 million for the top position, averaging $8,595 from 3,025 locations, the highest per-screen average in the top 10. The film added $4.5 million overseas for a worldwide opening weekend of $30.5 million. The movie is a big success, especially considering the budget of just $17 million.

#2 is a two-way tie in the estimates, with the final ranking to be determined by the actuals. First up is G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which was down from last week's #1 opening with $21.1 million. Paramount's action sequel had an impressive drop of just 48%, which is good for a front-loaded action film and well above the first film's 59% drop. The film has now grossed $86.7 million domestically and $231.9 million worldwide with a budget of $130 million.

The Croods also pulled in $21.1 million this weekend, its third, to tie G.I. Joe in the estimates. The DreamWorks Animation prehistoric animated film has a total of $125.8 million domestically and $330.7 million worldwide from a budget of $135 million.

Opening at #4 was Jurassic Park 3D. The 3D re-release of Stephen Spielberg's dinosaur epic brought in $18.3 million, averaging $6,585 from 2,771 theaters and adding $3 million overseas. The film now has a total gross of $375.3 million domestically and $935.9 million worldwide.

Olympus Has Fallen was down one spot to #5 in its third weekend with $10 million. The action-thriller has a total gross of $71.1 million domestically and $76.4 million worldwide on a budget of $70 million.

Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor was down three spots to #6 in its second weekend with $10 million. The film had a second-weekend drop of 53%, which is actually pretty solid for a Tyler Perry film. The movie has a two-week total of $38.4 million.

Oz the Great and Powerful finished down two spots to #7 with $8.2 million. The Disney film has now grossed $212.8 million domestically and $454.1 million worldwide in five weeks. The budget was $215 million.

The Host was down two to #8 in its second weekend with $5.2 million. The sci-fi adaptation of the Stephanie Meyers book fell 51%, which is disappointing considering the low gross it brought in last weekend. The film has a total gross of $19.7 million domestically and $30.4 million worldwide from a budget of $40 million.

The Call was also down two, finishing at #9 in its fourth weekend with $3.5 million. The Sony/WWE Studios thriller has now grossed $45.5 million on a budget of $13 million.

Admission was down two to #10 in its third weekend with $2.1 million. The Tina Fey/Paul Rudd comedy has a total of $15.4 million from a budget of $13 million.

The weekend box office tally was $132.6 million, up 7% from last year's $123.5 million gross that was led by The Hunger Games' third weekend of $33.1 million.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
