“Lucy” Claims The Weekend Box Office

LOS ANGELES (July 27, 2014) The Universal Pictures-released movie “Lucy” starring Scarlett Johansson as an accidental psychokinetic took in $44 million in North American movie theaters over the weekend, topping a remake of "Hercules" by director Brett Ratner, according to studio estimates Sunday.

"Hercules," starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and produced by Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, brought down an estimated $29 million.

Universal's president of domestic distribution, Nikki Rocco, says audiences came out for the unique story and to see Johansson in a leading action role.
