US Box Office Top 10 – 04-06/05

I don’t think anybody will be surprised to hear that last weeks number 1 Think Like a Man has been knocked off the top of the chart by the only new entry to get into the top 10.

As predicted The Avengers went straight into the  number 1 spot however none would of thought that it would smash records by taking the most money over the weekend hitting the $200 million mark however it’s the fact that it’s taken more than the whole run of Captain America and Thor in only it’s first weekend.

10 – The 3 Stooges – $1.800.000 – $39.637.000

9 – Chimpanzee – $2.395.000 – $23.012.000

8 – Safe – $2.470.000 – $12.874.000

7 – The Raven – $2.508.000 – $12.047.000

6 – The 5 Year Engagement – $5.100.000 – $19.200.000

5 – Pirates! Band of Misfits – $5.400.000 – $18.563.000

4 – The Lucky One – $5.510.000 – $47.917.000

3 – The Hunger Games – $5.700.000 – $380.727.000

2 – Think Like a Man – $8.000.000 – $73.029.000

1 – Marvel’s The Avengers – (NE) – $200.300.000

New Releases – Like last week there is only 1 film of note out this week however i don’t see it knocking The Avengers off the top spot but Tim Burton’s latest film with Johnny Depp, Dark Shadow will have a good go.

US Box Office Top 10 – 27-29/04

Despite there being 4 new films in this weeks top 10 none of them could managed to knock last weeks number 1 off the top spot so Think Like a Man has spent another week at number 1 and it should be it’s last.

As said above 4 new films graced this weeks chart, first off going in at number 7 was horror film based on the last few days of Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven, going in one space above that at number 6 is the latest action film with Jason Statham, Safe, one more space above that at number 5 is the Five-Year Engagement however Pirates:Band of Misfits was the highest new entry going in at number 2.

10 – The Cabin in the Woods – $4.500.000 – $34.664.000

9 – The 3 Stooges – $5.400.000 – $37.141.000
