Sony's Resident Evil: Retribution grossed $1.68 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for a fourth consecutive day. The fifth installment of the video game based franchise starring Milla Jovovich fell 67 percent from Sunday. Through four days of release Resident Evil: Retribution has grossed $22.73 million. That places the film 21 percent behind the $28.70 million four-day start of 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife, which fell 66 percent on its first Monday to gross $2.05 million. It should be noted that like Resident Evil: Afterlife, Resident Evil: Retribution is performing far stronger internationally than domestically.
Disney's Finding Nemo 3D placed in second with $1.22 million. The 3D re-issue of the 2003 Pixar computer animated film was down 74 percent from Sunday. Finding Nemo 3D has grossed $17.91 million in four days, which is below expectations, but still solid given the relative inexpensive cost of a 3D animated re-issue. Finding Nemo 3D is currently running 19 percent behind the $22.21 million four-day start of Beauty and the Beast 3D back in January. The lifetime unadjusted domestic gross for Finding Nemo currently stands at $357.62 million.
The Master continued its impressive platform start with $103,650 on Monday. That gave the Paul Thomas Anderson directed film from The Weinstein Company a massive daily per-location average of $20,730 from 5 locations in New York and Los Angeles. The Master has grossed $839,961 through four days of platform release and is scheduled to expand into moderate release on Friday.
