I knew Hugh Jackman wouldn’t let me down. Chappie was indeed the number one movie this weekend, but at just $13.3 million, that’s not much to celebrate.
Focus was blurry at number two with $10 million and a two week domestic total of $34.5 million.
The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel had plenty of vacancy, opening at number three with $8.6 million.
Kingsman The Secret Service dropped to number four with $8.3 million, but has a solid domestic total of $98 million. A sequel could be in the works.
SpongeBob stayed on the box office smash wave at number five with $7 million and a domestic total of 148.9 million clams.
Fifty Shades of Grey continued to take a hit at number six with $5.6 million.
McFarland USA lost its footing at number seven with $5.3 million and a domestic total of $29.4 million.
The Lazarus Effect is dying a quick death at number eight after two weeks in release with $5.1 million. Its tiny budget of $3.3 million is this stinker’s saving grace.
The DUFF slipped to number nine with $4.8 million and a domestic total of $26.1 million.
Rounding out the top ten was Unfinished Business, which opened in last place with $4.8 million. A sequel to The Wedding Crashers is Vince Vaughn’s only hope.

Next week old tough guys battle princesses at the box office. But look for Cinderella to claim the top spot over Liam Neeson’s Run All Night. Tune in to see if I’m right.
Until then, happy movie going!
