Top 10 movies: Military drama beats Hercules’ muscle power

See also

The “Lone Survivor” debuted two weeks ago in small release and finally hit all theaters this past weekend. So technically, “The Legend of Hercules” was the only new debut to theaters. Unfortunately for the Greek demi-God, his muscle power was not enough to win the top spot at the movies. On Monday, January 13, the Box Office updated their charts to feature the top 10 movies this weekend.

At last, “Frozen” has given the crown to another film – “Lone Survivor” starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, and more. Despite the small release against it, the military drama beat all odds and surprised both critics and fans, accumulating an estimated $38.5 million this weekend.

Kellan Lutz’s “The Legend of Hercules” didn’t do as well. The Greek mythology tale received horrible reviews, and barely made it to fourth place with a low $8.6 million. This total doesn’t look too good compared to its reported $70 million production budget. Below are the top 10 movies of the weekend from Friday, January 10, through Sunday, January 12:

  1. “Lone Survivor” $38.5 million
  2. “Frozen” $15 million
  3. “The Wolf of Wall Street” $9 million
  4. “The Legend of Hercules” $8.6 million
  5. “American Hustle” $8.6 million
  6. “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” $8 million
  7. “Saving Mr. Banks” $6.5 million
  8. “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” $6.3 million
  9. “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” $6 million
  10. “Her” $5.4 million
