Box office

YOUR WEAKEND BOX OFFICE: Only one noteworthy film—the fourth installment of the Ice Age franchise—debuted on this midsummers weekend, and, not surprisingly, the animated feature won the weekend with a solid $46m. Last weekend’s winner, The Amazing Spider-Man, dropped to #2, while Ted showed enough strength in its third week to hang on to the third spot. Here’s the top 10:

1 Ice Age: Continental Drift (Fox): $46m – 3,881 theaters/$11,853 avg.
2 The Amazing Spider-Man (Sony): $35m (-43.6%) – 4,318 theaters/$8,106 avg.
3 Ted (Universal): $22.15m (-31.2%) – 3,303 theaters/$6,705 avg.
4 Brave (Disney): $10.7m (-45.5%) – 3,392 theaters/$3,153 avg.
5 Magic Mike (WB): $9.03m (-42.3%) – 3,090 theaters/$2,922 avg.
6 Savages (2012) (Universal): $8.74m (-45.5%) – 2,635 theaters/$31,466,000 avg.
7 Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection (Lionsgate): $5.6m (-45.0%) – 2,004 theaters/$2,794 avg.

10 Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (Paramount/DreamWorks): $3.5m (-53.5%) – 2,285 theaters/$1,532 avg.

In  the limited-release sector, the big story continued to be Fox Searchlight’s Beasts of the Southern Wild, which earned $775k in 81 theaters, an increase of 107.2% 81, averaging $9,568, putting it behind only Ice Age: Continental Drift in that measurement.
