Resident Evil: Retribution Takes Top Spot at Box Office

Resident Evil: Retribution, director Paul W.S. Anderson's fifth in the franchise flick, debuted in the number one spot this weekend ($21.1 million), beating out the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo ($17.5 million).  I still am surprised that this franchise is still around, since it's pretty awful.  What do the foreign audience's see in this film that's worthwhile? Resident Evil: Afterlife made $236.1 million overseas, afterall.

In other news, the other Paul Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, opened to $730 thousand from just 5 theaters, which is a record.  The Master expands into wide release next weekend.
