Dawn Treader sails into box office top spot

Narnia is number one


Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, the latest in the Chronicles Of Narnia film adaptations, roared straight to the top of box office this weekend.

It’s not all plain sailing, though. The film’s $24m opening weekend is a shade of previous film Prince Caspian’s $55m first three days. Compare that to The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe’s fair $65m opening, and it looks like Treader could signal the last of the Narnia adaps.

Elsewhere in the box office, The Tourist cruised into second place with $17m, Tangled – in third – added $14.5m to its money pot, Harry Potter had a decent fourth week in fourth ($8.5m), and Unstoppable rounded out the top five with $3.7m.

Black Swan rode a wave of positive reviews all the way from 13th to sixth ($3.3m), Burlesque plummeted from third to seventh ($3.2m), Love And Other Drugs dropped three places to eighth ($3m) and Due Date took $2.5m in ninth.

Megamind rounded out the top ten with a further $2.5m. Next week, Tron: Legacy is unleashed on the world after a mammoth three year tease. Will it set the box office alight?
