Expendables 2 brawls to No. 1 at North American box office
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sylvester Stallone and his beefy buddies have muscled their way to the top of the weekend box office.
Stallone's action hero roundup The Expendables 2 debuted at No. 1 with US$28.8 million (S$36 million), according to studio estimates on Sunday. That's down from the US$34.8 million start for The Expendables two years ago.
The Lionsgate sequel elbowed out another action tale as Universal's The Bourne Legacy fell to No. 2 in its second weekend with US$17 million.
That was a steep 55 per cent drop from its US$38.1 million opening weekend, though the movie's domestic total climbed to a solid US$69.6 million.
