‘The Bourne Legacy’ successfully premieres at number one, beating out Batman’s streak with $40.3 million dollars. Universal certainly did everything right to keep the Bourne franchise alive, with the results of this one we can be sure to receive many more films about the spies looking for their identities.
Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis’ comedy ‘The Campaign’ took over the second spot with $27.4 million dollars. Perhaps many people wanted to get a comedic relief from all the presidential campaigning happening at the moment and these two comedy geniuses sure delivered.
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ takes a hard fall to number three with $19.5 million dollars, rounding out to $390 million dollars. The drop is sudden and surprising but the film remained at number one for three straight weeks like ‘The Avengers’ did, despite of it not earning as much as that one.
