Weekend B.O. July 13-15 ('Beasts' Still Doing Solid B.O.)

To get the obvious stuff out of the way first, Ice Age: Continental Drift was No. 1 as expected, with The Amazing Spider Man in second place. Ted is still very strong on its way to, perhaps, becoming the biggest grossing R rated comedy ever; and Magic Mike is still doing quite well attracting a large female audience (and gay men as well according to a recent article in  the New York Times).

Beasts of the Southern Wild

To get the obvious stuff out of the way first, Ice Age: Continental Drift was No. 1 as expected, with The Amazing Spider Man in second place. Ted is still very strong on its way to, perhaps, becoming the biggest grossing R rated comedy ever; and Magic Mike is still doing quite well attracting a large female audience (and gay men as well according to a recent article in  the New York Times).

But of course the question for us is how is Beasts of the Southern Wild faring? The answer is quite well indeed, thank you.

The film, which is now in 16th place, has the second highest per screen average (after Ice Age) and expanded this weekend onto 61 more screens, now playing on 81 screens across the country.

The film grossed $775,000 this weekend - only $100,000 less than the film ahead of it, Men in Black III, which is still playing on just 500 screens. 

The total for Beasts to date is $1,677,000.

1) Ice Age: Continental Drift Fox $46,000,000
2) The Amazing Spider-Man Sony $35,000,000 Total; $200,900,000
3) Ted Uni. $22,147,000 Total: $158,993,000 $50
4) Brave BV $10,695,000 Total; $195,596,000
5) Magic Mike WB $9,030,000 Total:  $91,850,000
6) Savages Uni. $8,735,000  Total; $31,466,000
7) Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection LGF $5,600,000 Total; $55,628,000
8) Katy Perry: Part of Me Par. $3,735,000 Total; $18,588,000
9) Moonrise Kingdom Focus $3,662,000 Total; $32,427,000
