The Bourne Legacy outperformed fellow newcomer The Campaign, as the Jeremy Renner headlined feature took in $40.3 million. The Meryl Streep/Tommy Lee Jones feature Hope Springs also had a decent debut with $15.6 million, coming in at #4. Here’s the top 10:
1. The Bourne Legacy - Jeremy Renner is finally front and center with his own A-list action thriller. Sans Matt Damon, the film still makes $40.3 million.
2. The Campaign - Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are just what the comedy doctor ordered with a $27.44 million opening.
3. The Dark Knight Rises - With $19.54 million over the weekend, the picture has taken in over $390 million domestically.
4. Hope Springs - Debuted with $15.6 million, not bad for a comedy about an elderly couple (Tommy Lee Jones, Meryl Streep) trying to rekindle their passion. I’m betting The Avengers crowd skipped this one.
5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days - Family film has a 43% drop in its second weekend, making $8.2 million.
6. Total Recall - Not very good news for this remake, as the film turned in just $8.1 million and had a 68% drop in its second weekend.
7. Ice Age: Continental Drift - The animated flick drew $6.75 million for a domestic total of $144 million
8. Ted - Seth MacFarlane’s comedy remains in the top 10 with $3.3 million.
9. Step Up Revolution - Dances its way to $2.85 million.
10. The Amazing Spider-Man - The picture made $2.2 million, and this reboot has made over $255 million domestically.
10. The Watch - Ties The Amazing Spider-Man with $2.2 million. The Ben Stilller/Vince Vaughn/Jonah Hill comedy underperformed over the summer, as it’s collected just over $31 million domestically.
