Lionsgate’s film The Possession managed to hold onto the number one spot at the box office during one of the lowest-grossing box office weekends this year.
This weekend was such a bore (at least, to me) at the movies that I didn’t know what was playing until a few minutes before writing this post.
Anyway, in its second week, the horror flick grossed an estimated $9.5 million, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. Lawless took the No. 2 spot with more than $6 million. New release The Words, starring Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana, drew $5 million.
Following in fourth place, The Expendables 2 earned $4.75 million. The other action film, The Bourne Legacy, took the No. 5 spot with $4 million.
ParaNorman raked in $3.8 million to take sixth place. At No. 7, The Odd Life of Timothy Green drummed up $3.6 million in ticket sales.
Rounding out the top 10: The Campaign (No. 8, $3.5 million), The Dark Knight Rises (No. 9, $3.2 million) and 2016: Obama’s America (No. 10, $3.2 million).
