By Zach

In case you couldn’t tell by the movies that came out over the weekend, Summer blockbuster season is officially over as the new releases barely registered on the charts.  The Expendables 2 took the top spot for the second week in a row but is still well below the original.  It’s total is $52 million while The Expendables was at $65 million at the same point.  It also dropped 50% from the last weekend. The Bourne Legacy stayed in second with another $9.5 million but it is set to become the lowest grossing movie in the franchise.  ParaNorman also stayed firm in third place with another $8.5 million.  The Campaign and The Dark Knight Rises rounded out the top 5.  With the new releases, Premium Rush was the “best” performing but it only came in seventh with $6.3 million.  Hit & Run barely made it into the top 10 with $4.7 million and The Apparition was a disaster with $2.9 million and 12th place.  In other news, Sparkle imploded and went from fifth to eleventh.
