"Lucy" Outmuscles "Hercules" to Take Top Spot at Box Office

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 16:40:13 +0000

Universal Pictures(NEW YORK) -- Scarlett Johansson's Lucy topped the box office this past weekend, fending off Dwayne Johnson's Hercules for the top spot.

Johansson's character is able to manipulate time and matter by accessing 100 percent of her brain -- way above the normal 10 percent that humans can access. Lucy may not have taken 100 percent of the box office, but did manage to hold off Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Hercules reboot.

Last week's top film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes finished in third place.

Here are the top ten films of the weekend according to boxofficemojo.com:

1. Lucy: $44.025 million
2. Hercules (2014): $29 million
3. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: $16.4 million
4. The Purge: Anarchy: $9.896 million
5. Planes: Fire & Rescue: $9.303 million
6. Sex Tape: $5.975 million
7. Transformers: Age of Extinction: $4.6 million
8. And So It Goes: $4.552 million
9. Tammy: $3.4 million
10. A Most Wanted Man: $2.717 million
