BATTLE: LOS ANGELES DESTROYS THE WEEKEND BOX OFFICE COMPETITION
As everyone expected, Battle:Los Angeles dominated at the box office this weekend taking in $36.0 million. The film received mostly positive reviews, and the special effects were amazing. There was no doubt Battle: Los Angeles would take the top spot, it was just a matter of much it would earn.
The family animated movie, Rango, which claimed last weeks top spot, fell to second place grossing $23.1 million. This is not bad considering three other movies, Red Riding Hood, Battle: Los Angeles, and Mars Needs Moms, all opened this weekend.
Red Riding Hood finished in third place pulling in a very disappointing $14.1 million. The film received mostly negative reviews, despite having a likeable cast led by Amanda Seyfried.
Rounding out the top five at the box office were the romantic thriller, The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, which came in forth place earning $11.5 million, and the disappointment of the weekend was the Walt Disney animated family film, Mars Needs Moms, making only $6.8 million in the fifth place spot.
