underworld awakening is number one at box office

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!

Check out a full list of this weekend's top box office earners AFTER THE JUMP!

    Why are you acting like $25.4 million DOMINATED the box office? Yeah, it was #1, but that is not a lot of money based on the (probably rather high) budget and also what movies USED to make at the box office on a regular basis.

    None of these movies were worth going out to see IMO.

    But at least Twilight isn't still in the top 10

    I'm a sucker for these.

    the third Underworld movie was a prequel so this isn't a fourquel FYI

    She looks hot, but no one looks hotter than Charlize as Aeon Flux.

    She looks hot, but no one was hotter than Charlize Theron as Aeon Flux.

    Why why why?! I saw this film with my gf on her insistence AND. IT. SUCKED.

    I mean, we're talking, stupid, cliche, recycled, textbook stuff. I mean, they ripped of every film that was a rip off of a descent vampire movie or the matrix. It was terrible, really really bad… just.. really bad.
