Bradley Cooper’s new film
took prime position at the US box office this weekend, landing the number one spot.
After tussling with Rango , Battle: Los Angeles , The Lincoln Lawyer and Paul , it led the pack – but only just, earning itself $19m in ticket stubs.
Rango settled for second with $15m, critically drubbed alien invasion film Battle: LA stalled in third ($14.6m), Lincoln Lawyer opened in fourth ($13.4m) and Paul rounded out the top five with $13m.
The rest of the top ten saw less impressive returns, with Red Riding Hood sulking in sixth with just $7.2m, The Adjustment Bureau slacking in seventh ($5.9m) and Mars Needs Moms clinging on for dear life in eighth ($5.3m).
Beastly continued its disappointing run in ninth place ($3.2m), as did the moderately well-reviewed Hall Pass in tenth with just $3.6m.
