Forum Buzz: Mid-to-Late 2013 Releases Dominate the Chart

on March 15, 2013 by Shawn Robbins

trek2-iron3-manofsteel.pngWith Oz: The Great and Powerful exiting in fourth place last week, our forum members had the opportunity to fill in that gap.

The top ten itself didn't see any films lose ground, although The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug enjoyed a three spot bump up to fourth place. Meanwhile, Fast and Furious 6 tied for seventh with Pacific Rim and strong Internet buzz pushed Evil Dead into the top ten as it tied for #9 with Monsters University.

The big story of the week, however, was The Hangover Part III. Fresh off the debut of that film's first poster and teaser trailer last week, the comedy three-quel leaped thirteen positions up to #12--its highest ranking to date.

Just call it a broken record at the top of the chart: Star Trek Into Darkness held on to first place for a seventh straight week (last week's release of a short new trailer probably didn't hurt) while Iron Man 3 clung to the runner-up spot and Man of Steel rounded out the top three.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and The Call exited without charting.
