Coming in second with $20.5 million was the debut of the Seth Rogen apocalyptic comedy This Is the End.

Box Office Breakdown: ‘Now You See Me,’ ‘After Earth’ Trail Behind

Vin Diesel in 'Fast & Furious 6'

Neither magic tricks nor an futuristic-yet-abysmal Will Smith vehicle were enough to bring Fast & Furious 6 down from its number one position. The car thriller held its own in its second week at the theaters with $34.5 million while newcomers Now You See Me and After Earth just couldn't make the cut to the top spot.

The Louis Leterrier-helmed Now You See Me placed second with $28 million while M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth debuted with $27 million (even removing Shyamalan's name from promotional material for the film couldn't guarantee a better debut). Epic stayed put at number four in its second week with $16.4 million while Star Trek Into Darkness fell two spots to number five.
