Limitless Wins, Lincoln Lawyer Loses

Bradley Cooper will nurse his breakup wounds with lots and lots of cash. His new film Limitless won the top box office spot, taking in $19.2 million. Animated flick Rango held fast in the top five, coming in at second place with a $15.2 million take. After three weeks, the surprise hit has brought in $92.6 million. In its second week, Aaron Eckhart's Battle: Los Angeles took in $14.6 million, for a two-week total of $60.6. There was some bad news, too: Despite offering a first-of-its-kind Groupon promotion for reduced-priced tickets — not to mention positive critical reviews — Matthew McConaughey's The Lincoln Lawyer battled for fourth place with the sci-fi stoner alien comedy Paul. (The official fourth and fifth positions won't be decided until the weekend's officially over).
