Battle: Los Angeles Blows Up At The Box Office

This weekend, it was Battle: Los Angeles that won the Box Office war, pushing Rango (last week’s winner) into the number two spot. With an estimated production budget $70 million, lucky for them they’re already halfway there in terms of recouping their costs. The action thriller stars Aaron Eckhart and Michelle Rodriguez fighting in a global offensive initiated by unknown extraterrestrial hostiles – the first good alien invasion movie in some time! The effects are amazing.

As for the other films, as mentioned, Rango came in second with just over $23 million, bringing its two weekend total to $68.6 million. Red Hiding Hood came in third this weekend with a mediocre $14.1 million, while Mars Needs Moms needed a lot more than Moms, bringing in a measly $6.8 million in its opening weekend. Check out the full top ten list below.
