Box Office Breakdown: Rambo Outgunned by Spartans

Rambo

Although was hoping to end the series on an up note, it appears the actor/writer/director will just have to settle for second place.  Many had expected the fourth installment would come away with the weekend’s spoils, unfortunately the aging action hero was overpowered by a group of toga-clad warriors.

It should be said though that had an extremely narrow victory.  The spoof of 2007’s edged out the action flick by just $300,000.  But a win is still a win, right?  The satire also had the best per screen average of any movie in the Top Ten ($7104).

  • - last week’s #1 - dropped a whopping three spaces this week.  Although some chart shifting was expected, the record holder’s placement behind was still a bit surprising.  Could it be that people were afraid of succumbing to motion sickness?
