There’s no “Rush” to see the Newcomers at the Box Office

This weekend proved a really sad one for Hollywood as all three new releases tanked and The Expendables 2 easily won a second week on top despite a 52% drop. The action film took in $13.5 million and now has a total of $52 million. This week’s newcomers included the bike messenger thriller Premium Rush starring the awesome Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who was brilliant in last year’s 50/50 and this summer’s The Dark Knight Rises) which fared the best of the worst with only $6.3 million while the new Dax Shepard/Kristen Bell comedy Hit and Run stumbled in tenth place with just $4.6 million. Luckily the latter film had a low production budget and should break even. The same can’t be said for the final new entry, the horror film The Apparition, which didn’t even make the top ten pulling in a sad $2.9 million… For more on these numbers, head to Box Office Mojo here and check out the new top ten below.
