Box Office Results

Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi action flick Elysium (Sony), the director's follow-up to the acclaimed District 9, this one starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, opened on Friday in 3,284 theaters. After grossing $11 million on Friday including Thursday previews, it won the weekend with an estimated $30.5 million or roughly $9,500 per theater with $4.9 million of its domestic opening coming from 328 IMAX screens. That was less than the breakout opening for District 9, which opened in early August 2009 with $37.3 million on its way to a $215 million global box office total. Elysium also opened in 17 markets overseas including Russia, where it opened at #1 with $6.8 million, and in Taiwan, also #1 with $1.7 million, to add another $10.9 million to its domestic take. Sony Pictures International will be expanding Blomkamp's film to more markets over the coming weeks. Check the list for the rest of the top 15 films at the box office and we'll see you guys on friday !
