Resident Evil: Afterlife Blows Away the Competition

by at . Comments

Resident Evil: Afterlife blasted out of the gates this weekend with $27.7 million, making it the biggest opening of all the Resident Evil films and putting it at the top of the box office charts. Worldwide, the film brought in a total of $73.2 million. Still, at least 2,000 of the film's 3,203 theaters were playing 3D, which means higher ticket prices, which could mean it actually isn't performing any better than 2007's Resident Evil: Extinction. Either way, it's not a bad opening for a September release that cost $60 million to make.
