LOS ANGELES (AP) – Luc Besson’s Lucy proved mind can overpower muscle, topping a remake of Hercules by director Brett Ratner at the box office on the weekend.
According to studio estimates today, the Universal Pictures-released movie starring Scarlett Johansson as an accidental psychokinetic took in $44 million in North American movie theatres over the weekend.
Hercules, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and produced by Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, brought down an estimated $29 million.
Universal’s president of domestic distribution, Nikki Rocco, says audiences came out for the unique story and to see Johansson in a leading action role.
