BOX OFFICE: Disappointing $28.7 Million Opening Weekend For THE EXPENDABLES 2

The follow-up to the 2010 film has arrived, but it seems that this sequel had a hard time at the box office this weekend. The Simon West-directed action film made less than the first film, according to official estimates. Check it out...


Despite better reviews and bigger cast, The Expendables 2 grossed $28.7 million in its opening weekend according to official estimates (via BoxOffice.com). That is 17% less than the first film back in 2010 ($34.8 million). Many predicted that The Expendables 2 will most definitely make more than the first chapter in the first weekend. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore, which should result in a good word-of-mouth. It will be interesting to see the numbers for next weekend.


Meanwhile, The Bourne Legacy continued its solid run with another $17.0 million, and the total is now $69.6 million. The Dark Knight Rises made $11.1 million, and it also passed the $400 million mark, which means that the film now stands at $409.9 million. It is now #12 film of all-time domestically.
