Emma Stone plays the epically curious Eep, a teen cavegirl with a crush on a modern boy and his hilarious tree-sloth buddy. Exploring what it means to be human, this beautiful animated film explored its way to $44.7 million at the box office.
Olympus Has Fallen
Gerard Butler plays a pumped-up, realistic bad-a**, able to single-handedly take down a brutal Korean paramilitary group. Earning $30.5 million this weekend, this action thriller will no doubt stick around past spring break.
Adding $22 million in box office takings, this prequel to The Wizard of Oz is truly magical, but how long can it stay in the top three?
While most critics panned this film, we thought Tina Fey did the best acting of her career to date. Opening to $6.4 million isn’t anything for Ms. Bossypants to get neurotic over.
This wildly strange and intoxicating film stars James Franco as one of the most freaky and sinister characters of the year. This movie opened widely this week to $5 million.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Steve Carell and Olivia Wilde can’t be too wild about this film’s lack of magical box office return — a mere $4.2 million this weekend.
Jack the Giant Slayer
With kids out of school, no doubt many will flock to this new version of the beloved fairy tale. Starring Nicholas Hoult and Eleanor Tomlinson, Jack added $2.9 million to its $59 million total.
This comedy has done very well for Melissa McCarthy and added $2.5 million this weekend. It also stars Jason Bateman, who is rumored to be developing Horrible Bosses 2.
This film added $1.9 million to its bounty. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is headed back to the box office with GI Joe: Retaliation, which opens this Thursday, March 28.
