If last weekend raised eyebrows at the low numbers coming in from Spain, this weekend should start bringing in more questions about the reliability of the Spanish box office. Oblivion fell 53% from last weekend and still managed to maintain the top spot at the box office. The sci-fi film's $1.3 million weekend gross was the only one to break the $1 million mark. Making matters worse, the premiere of Warm Bodies, the second highest grossing film of the weekend, only brought in $481,652. The Croods landed in fifth place during its fifth week in release and is still the only discernible box office success currently in release with a $13 million cume. The weekend's three other new releases failed to make an impact either; Safe Haven, Promised Land, and The Hunt all returned with opening weekends under $400,000. All eyes will be on the upcoming release of Iron Man 3 to see if it can spring Spain's box office out of its slumber.
