In second place was Nancy Meyers’ The Intern, a light comedy starring Anne Hathaway as a high-strung tech entrepreneur and her new senior intern, Robert DeNiro. The film was her second best opening ever (after 2009’s It’s Complicated).

All in all this weekend raked in 29.8% more cash than last year, which is high, but that doesn’t mean all films boded well over the weekend.

Everest, for example, only took in $13 million, landing it squarely in fourth place. The movie had been pushed from its limited IMAX theater release into almost 2,500 more theaters, but that didn’t exactly equal more cash after its wildly successful opening weekend.

One film, however, is turning heads: Sicario. The “cartel thriller” starring Emily Blunt has garnered lots of stellar reviews and took in a strong finish so far in its (very) limited release. Per theater totals average $30,000 — not bad at all. Stay tuned for its expansion in the coming weeks.
