Expendables top on the worst week of 2012



Hollywood suffered a major hangover crash after summer ended.The 3 new releases failed to attract viewers allowing Expendables 2 to reign on for the 2nd consecutive week.This has been the lowest grossing week in 2012.

1-Expendables 2 maintained its top spot but fell to $13.5million and still is behind Expendables.Made on a budget of $100million ,the movie has racked up $52million domestically & $22million overseas by its 2nd week.

2-Bourne Legacy held on to #2 making $9.3million.The spinoff tale on the Bourne series has so far got above average reviews and is the least grossing movie from the Bourne series ,with $85million in domestic and $28million overseas.

3-ParaNorman made $8.5 million in its second week.The animated movie has made $28million already ,a good collection for a movie of its kind.

4-The Campaign made $7.4 million for a domestic gross of $64million.

5-Returning to the Top 5 is Christopher Nolan's epic finale - TDKR.The movie made $7million on its 6th week for a domestic collection of $422 million (#11 on the list). Meanwhile the movie is doing great overseas and has collected $519million already ,pushing the total collection past the $900m milestone.Overall the movie has made $941million(#17 on alltime lists).Can TDKR outgross TDK ($1billion) ?

Now where are the new releases?Premium Rush (the only noteworthy movie among the new releases ,starring Joseph Gordon) made its debut at #7 with just $6million.Even though the movie got a 75% rating,the movie isnt bringing anyone in.The movie is on its way to tank at the box office.Hit & Run & Apparition debuted at #10 & #12.

This week the new release is the star studded Lawless.Can the movie get a good start to September?
