Because of the three novels by Veronica Roth and a masterful pre-release marketing campaign, the new film “Divergent” opened very well with a total of $56 million on 3,936 screens, which put it on top of the box office.

“Mr. Peabody and Sherman” charmed both young and old audiences alike taking in $11.7 million, putting it in third place this weekend. For three weeks, this much-loved animated feature has a total of $81 million. In fourth place was “300: Rise of an Empire” with $8.7 million. In fifth place was “Need For Speed” with $7.8 million. “Need for Speed” is not performing as well as expected at the box office. For more on the weekend box office totals, click on the link below.
