Captain America: The First Avenger international box office overtakes domestic box office

Normally blockbusters perform stronger internationally than they do domestically, however, there was some expectation from Paramount that Captain America: The First Avenger wouldn’t carry on that tradition.

They were wrong.

Thanks to a strong $5M opening in China over the weekend, ‘Captain America’  has grossed more money internationally ($178M) than domestically ($173.5M). And it still […]

Weekend Box Office: ‘Rise of the Apes’ stays 1st with $27.8M, The Help strong 2nd with $26.0M + Final Destination 5 3rd, 30 Minutes or Less 5th and Glee 3D huge disappointment in 11th

Update: Updated with final box office data.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes held off four new releases to stay atop the box office charts this weekend with a $27.832M 2nd weekend (-49% / $105.208M cume).

The Help was really the only strong new release this weekend, taking in $26.045M from 2,534 theaters and pushing its 5-day cume — it opened on Wednesday — to a better than expected $35.918M.

‘Rise of the Apes’ was first Friday-Sunday, with $8.108M on Friday (vs. $7.645M for The Help), +35% on Saturday to $10.928M (vs. +31% / $9.997M for “The Help”) and -20% on Sunday to $8.797M (vs. -16% / $8.403M for “The Help”).

Third place went to Final Destination 5 with $18.031M from 3,155 theaters. The 3D release debuted on the lower end of expectations and this actually marks the first time a film in the franchise hasn’t topped its predecessor’s opening weekend.

30 Minutes or Less debuted about where most expected it to with $13.330M from 2,888 theaters in fifth place. The news was much worse for Glee The 3D Movie Concert. After a disappointing sixth place Friday ($2.735M), ‘Glee 3D’ dropped a disastrous 37% on Saturday to $1.716M and another 12% on Sunday to $1.511M for a hugely disappointing 11th place finish of $5.961M.

The Smurfs, meanwhile, rounded out the top five in fourth place with $13.733M in its third weekend to push its domestic cume past $100M at $101.779M.

Other noteworthy weekend highlights — both domestic and foreign — including for Captain America: The First Avenger, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon follow after the jump.

Cowboys & Aliens wins weekend with $36.4M, The Smurfs strong 2nd with $35.6M and Crazy, Stupid, Love fifth with $19.1M

Update: Updated with final box office data.

It was a close race, but Universal’s Cowboys & Aliens came out on top as the weekend’s number one film with $36.431M from 3,750 theaters. Sony’s 3D The Smurfs was second with $35.612M from 3,395 theaters.

Despite not winning the weekend, The Smurfs over-performed (even though it had […]
