Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 settled for a second place debut in the shadow of Captain Phillips. The animated sequel earned $3.4 million from a market-leading 928 screens in its debut weekend, a step above the original’s $2.5 million bow.  Cloudy 2 finished the weekend with a $5.9 million cume when factoring in previews. Bad Grandpa finished its weekend in the United Kingdom in third place with a $3.1 million bow. Bad Grandpa posted the best per-screen average among all the films playing in the United Kingdom with an $8,448 tally from 372 screens. 

Turbo slowed down in the face of a packed release calendar, following up its successful opening weekend with a $2.1 million hold from 547 screens. The 66% slide is steep but the animated film showed resiliency in a competitive market where it has now reached the $10 million mark.

Ender’s Game took a $1.8 million mid-table finish in its opening weekend. Fellow opener One Chance also finished the weekend with a  mid-table debut; the biopic opened in sixth place with a $1.1 million take from 403 screens.
