‘Ender’s Game’ Tops This Weekend’s Box Office


“Ender’s Game,” based on the novel by the same name by Orson Scott Card and staring Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield, led the box office this weekend, bringing in $28 million in it’s first weekend. “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa,” held over strong from last week’s debut, and brought in $20.5 million, and a total of $62.1 million thus far. The star studded “Last Vegas” (with Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline) came in third with $16.5 million. The first animated film from Reel FX, “Free Birds” opened in fourth with an estimated $16.2 million.

Also worth mentioning, Matthew McConaughey‘s latest film, “Dallas Buyers Club” opened in 9 theaters, with a solid $264,000 (number 20). With a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as awards buzz, Focus will most likely expand wide throughout the month to continue to garner strong word of mouth.
