We'll take any good news we can get this summer and although the weekend was down another 12% from last year, Universal's "Lucy" was a pleasant surprise, debuting with an impressive $44 million take, with Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" not far back at $29 million.

An estimated $2.7 million Thursday is an acceptable, if not sensational, start for the Scarlett Johansson starrer, "Lucy" from acclaimed writer and director Luc Besson. Here's thinking the film translates to an opening in the low 30's but with a less than impressive Cinemascore. Box Office Insider has the projected Weekend Top 10 here...

Looking for some action, bub? Well you've come to the right place. Presented for your approval, we have Scarlett Johansson, equal parts sexy and scary, in "Lucy" and Dwayne Johnson taking the second stab at "Hercules" this year. In addition, Michael Douglas gets cranky in "And So It Goes" and Gabriel Iglesias goes all "Fluffy" on us.

The amazingly prolific filmmaker Woody Allen highlights this week's indie releases as his latest offering, "Magic in the Moonlight" debuts on Friday. The film, which stars Colin Firth and Emma Stone probably won't crossover into multiplexes the way "Blue Jasmine" did but it seems like a pleasant enough diversion.
