The fourth Mission: Impossible flick DOMINATED the box office when it came out…and now the fourth Underworld movie is doing the same!
Over the weekend, Underworld: Awakening landed the #1 spot at the box office with $25.4 million! Wowsa!
Here's what Sony's president of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer had to say about the win, which he largely attributes to Kate Beckinsale's return to the franchise:
"She is such a force. Her character – you just can't take your eyes off of her. I know the character is very dear to her, as well, and she just kills it. The 3-D aspect of the film also brings something, makes it a fun, visceral ride."
Other movies that enjoyed success at the box office this weekend include Red Tails, which surpassed expectations at $19.1 million, and Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, which did better than expected with $9 million earned!
