BOX OFFICE: RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION Takes The #1 Spot In North America

It looks like the fifth instalment in the Resident Evil franchise will take the overall gross of the series to $1 billion after a good, but not great, opening in North America this weekend. Finding Nemo has been re-released in 3D this week and looks set to take the #2 spot.


Deadline reports that Resident Evil: Retribution 3D has taken the #1 spot this weekend in North America after earning $8.8 million on Friday ($665,000 of which was from midnight screenings) and an estimated $23 million in total. This is less than the fourth instalment in the franchise, although a Sony exec tells the site that, "From early returns from international including Japan, this could be the biggest one yet." While critics have never been particularly kind to the series, they have so far grossed over $675 million and Resident Evil: Retribution may see the franchise pass a total $1 billion worldwide. Meanwhile, the 3D release of Disney/Pixar animated movie Finding Nemo grossed $5 million on Friday and looks set to take $18.3 million for the weekend.
