The US Box Office Results Wrap Up
with Sean Lynch
This weekend at the USA Box Office was a battle of the action stars, with punters voting with their feet as Scarlett Johansson's Lucy kicked the butt of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Hercules.
Overall ticket sales were almost even with last weeks, but this weeks were more evenly spread over several films rather than sucking the life out of the entire market.
Lucy's demographic breakdown showed that the viewer base was evenly split 50/50 (an enormous showing for females in that genre) which could bode well if Marvel chooses to move forward with the long mooted solo "Black Widow" movie starring ScarJo.
Meanwhile Zach Braff's return to cinema proved positive with his first movie since Garden State increasing its number of screens and now sits at #18 on the charts with a haul of $1.8M (across 655 screens - minute when compared to Lucy's 3000+ screens).
