Expendables 2 brawls to top

Monday, August 20, 2012

LOS ANGELES, USA (AP) — Sylvester Stallone and his beefy buddies have muscled their way to the top of the weekend box office.

Stallone’s action hero round up The Expendables 2 debuted at No 1 with US$28.8 million, according to studio estimates yesterday. That’s down from the US$34.8 million start for The Expendables two years ago.

The Lionsgate sequel elbowed out another action tale as Universal’s The Bourne Legacy fell to Number 2 in its second weekend with US$17 million. That was a steep 55 per cent drop from its US$38.1 million opening weekend, though the movie’s domestic total climbed to a solid US$69.6 million.

Three other wide releases opened to modest business.

Focus Features’ animated comedy ParaNorman, about a boy leading the fight against zombies that rise from the grave, was No 3 with US$14 million.
