"Lucy" Destroys "Hercules" at the Box Office
Posted: July 27th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Scarlett Johansson's "Lucy" action film we up against Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" action film at the box office this weekend, with "Lucy" coming out a clear winner with $44 million in domestic earnings.

"Lucy" is directed by Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element). The film had the biggest opening of any film in his career and earned nearly four times as much as his "Colombiana" action film, starring Zoe Saldana.

"Lucy" cost $40 million to make, which means that it's already profitable. And with an international release still on its way, the new movie will be a major hit for everyone involved. It has a 58% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

"Hercules" had to settle for second place with a $29 million opening. That's a disappointing result for a movie that cost $100 million. But with another $29 million coming from international box office, "Hercules" has a good chance of ending up with a total of $200 million from the worldwide box office. The film has a 62% fresh rating.

Meanwhile, Rob Reiner's "And So It Goes" romantic comedy, starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, opened to only $4.6 million, which landed it in 8th place. Not a surprise for a film that has a 15% fresh rating.

On the specialty side, Philip Seymour Hoffman's "A Most Wanted Man" spy thriller was able to take tenth place despite being released in only 361 theaters. It has a 90% fresh rating.

And finally, Woody Allen's "Magic in the Moonlight," starring Colin Firth and Emma Stone, was released in 17 theaters and earned $425,730, which is a per-location average of $25,043. A decent result, but far worse than either "Blue Jasmine" or "Midnight in Paris." It has a 60% fresh rating.
