Need for Speed struggled in its Brazilian premiere with a third place finish behind a hold-over and a domestic opener. 300: Rise of an Empire kept the top spot in the market, while domestic film Alemão took second place -relegating the video game adaptation to a #3 debut. The $1.3 million opening weekend recorded by Need for Speed is only a small fraction of the $6.3 million bow that set off Fast & Furious 6 on the road to a $24 million cume in Brazil last year.
RoboCop continues its strong run in Brazil. The sci-fi remake helmed by Brazilian director Jose Padilha grossed $880k in its fourth frame in Brazil, reaching a cumulative total of $12.4 million in the market.
300: Rise of an Empire continues to rule the Brazilian box office after scoring another weekend atop the country's top ten chart. The 300 sequel kept 45% of the Top 5 market share in Brazil with a $3.5 million gross from 776 screens. The running total for the film currently stands at $10.9 million.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman earned $1.13 million from 617 screens over its second weekend in Brazil. The film reports a 10-day running total of $4.76 million.
