Resident Evil: Retribution took the top spot at the box office this weekend. It was another down weekend for movies as the top earning flick was only able to bring in $21 million. From BoxOfficeMojo.com:
1 Resident Evil: Retribution $21,100,000
2 Finding Nemo (3D) $17,504,000
3 The Possession $5,800,000
4 Lawless $4,219,000
5 ParaNorman $3,039,000
I know I just wrote it, but I hardly believe it. "Only $21 million"? I mean if I did anything that earned Only $21 million dollars I'd retire to Barcelona and never work a day in my life again. $21 million is 21 million dollars, but in the world of major motion pictures it isn't very much. The reported budget for this latest Resident Evil was $65 million. Now I'm now math wiz, but the amount of money it's made is less than it was made for. It is only the first few days in release, but it's not the type of start they would have expected much less wanted.
