A normal dropoff for this sequel.
What comes next: This is going to get closer to $100 million domestically than initially seemed likely, with more than that already in internationally.
5. The Bourne Legacy (Universal) - Week 5; Last Weekend: #4
$4,000,000 (-44%) in 2,766 theaters (-365); PSA: $1,460; Cumulative: $103,700,000
A very solid hold for this, as its more adult audience continues to add to the gross of a film that based on its opening weekend was in danger of falling short of $100 million, which now has been passed.
What comes next: With much of the world yet to open, this still has a shot of passing $250 million, below hopes, but enough to give it a chance at breaking even or more.
6. ParaNorman (Focus) - Week 4; Last Weekend: #5
$3,830,000 (-42%) in 2,856 theaters (-229); PSA: $1,341,000; Cumulative: $45,098,000
With kids now back in school everywhere, this drop is reasonable.
What comes next: This should still eke out a $50 million total.
7. The Odd Life of Timothy Green (Buena Vista) - Week 4; Last Weekend: #6
$3,700,000 (-41%) in 2,717 theaters (+82); PSA: $321; Cumulative: $43,000,000
Still adding theaters and steadily adding to its gross, this Disney family drama is performing much better than its opening weekend suggested it would.
What comes next: With its modest budget, the eventual $50 million+ gross domestically plus the rest of the world should lead to a comfortable profit.
8. The Campaign (Warner Brothers) - Week 5; Last Weekend: #8
$3,530,000 (-38%) in 2,542 theaters (-399); PSA: $1,389; Cumulative: $79,473,000
A minor drop - even in an off weekend, this is yet another film holding better than expected.
What comes next: $90 million seems in reach if this keeps holding this well.
9. The Dark Knight Rises (Warner Brothers) - Week 8; Last Weekend: #7
$3,285,000 (-46%) in 1,987 theaters (-200); PSA: $1,653; Cumulative: $437,849,000
Still hanging around even after almost two months.
What comes next: "The Dark Knight" lasted 10 weeks in the top 10, which seems now unlikely for this still huge grossing film.
10. 2016 Obama's America (Rocky Mountain) - Week 9; Last Weekend: #9
$3,281,000 (-41%) in 2,017 theaters (+270); PSA: $1,627; Cumulative: $26,088,000
No post-convention bump for this anti-Obama film, adding about 15% more theaters as it expands once again but with a big drop in its PSA.
What comes next: This has already grossed far beyond expectations, and its likely final gross of over $30 million will place it among the top indie releases of the year.
