‘Lucy’ Defeats ‘Hercules’ With an Astonishing $44 Mil

Somehow, someway, Scarlett Johansson’s latest lead effort has done the unexpected and acquired a hefty $44 million dollar gross this opening weekend. Clearly, this news wouldn’t be as shocking if its major competitor wasn’t starred by heavyweight Dwayne Johnson, whose action-packed film, Hercules, had only scooped up about $29 million, according to Rentrak.

‘Maleficent’ Reigns Over Box Office

In the midst of a busy box office weekend packed full of knights, kings, cowboys, and death, it had all ended with Maleficent sitting atop of the competition, with over $70 million to show.
