Falling more than 65% from its opening weekend but still up in the air at third, "Man of Steel" had a strong second weekend with $41 million and is the fifth film of the year to cross the $200 million mark domestically, with $210.6 million so far. Also in its second week and in fourth, "This Is The End" made an okay $13 million with a running total of $57.8 million. In its fourth week and the fifth spot, "Now You See Me" is still being seen, making $7.9 million this weekend and possibly a weekend away from hitting the $100 million mark. In its fifth weekend, "Fast & Furious 6" is in the rather apropos sixth spot, making $4.7 million. After two weeks, "The Internship" keeps fumbling with the coffee in seventh place, making $3.4 million. Right behind with $13k less, "The Purge" is in eighth with $3.4 million. Rounding out the top ten are two steady placeholders: "Star Trek Into Darkness" made $3 million in its sixth weekend and "Iron Man 3" made $2.2 million in its eighth weekend, crossing the $400 million mark domestically.
As for specialty box office, The Weinstein Company-produced "Unfinished Song" hit a high note. The Paul Andrew Williams-directed choral dramedy starring Terence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave, "Unfinished Song" opened in two theaters and made $27,692, averaging $13,846 per theater. In its second week and again in the second spot, Morgan Neville's "20 Feet From Stardom" made $74,682 at six theaters (expanding from three), averaging $10,780 per theater. Another debut, Ziad Doueiri's Israel-set drama "The Attack," made $26,352 at three theaters, averaging $8,784 per theater. Also with a violent-sounding title and opening this weekend, Tobias Lindholm's "A Hijacking" about Somali pirates made $42,500 at seven theaters, averaging $6,071. In big specialty box office news, Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha" has made over $3 million in its sixth weekend and Jeff Nichols' "Mud" has made over $20 million after nine weeks, making it not only the highest grossing film from Roadside Attractions but also the second indie film of the year to cross the $20 million mark (first being "The Place Beyond The Pines").
