THE EXPENDABLES 2 debuts on top!

20 Aug 2012

SINGAPORE - THE EXPENDABLES 2 blows away the competition as it scores the highest screen average for a NC16 film in 2012 and the third highest overall. Its debut screen average of US$25,847 is behind only SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (US$28,132) and THE AVENGERS (US$27,756) while staying ahead of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (US$24,093), MADAGASCAR 3 (US$21,548) and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (US$20,624). Its result is even more impressive considering the release on 38 prints grossed a total of US$982,183, and is now on track to overtake its predecessor which grossed US$1.37m in 2010.
