‘The Beekeeper’ Edges Out ‘Mean Girls’ To Win The Weekend


The Beekeeper is claiming victory over Mean Girls at the weekend box office with an estimated $7.4 million from 3,337 theaters, but Mean Girls was hot on its tail. 

Both films are in their third weekend, and their domination underscores the worrisome situation facing cinema operators as the production pipeline slows to a trickle because of production delays due to last year’s strikes. It is the second weekend in a row that there are no new nationwide releases.

Beekeeper jumped the $100 million mark globally upon finishing Sunday with a domestic total of $42.3 million and $61.9 million overseas for an estimated global tally of $104.2 million.

The top 12 films of the weekend are as follows:
