Scarlett Johannson just whooped Dwayne Johnson’s ass in the box office, as her movie Lucy took the number one spot on the box office chart this weekend with Johnson’s Hercules in second place.
Hercules, armed with a massive marketing machine, played in 3,595 theaters this weekend but only got $29 million in box office revenue, versus the $44 million that the Luc Besson-directed Lucy received. Lucy also played in 420 less theaters.
Hercules had a production budget of just over $100 million while Lucy had only $40 million.
Johnson has once again failed to secure a number one spot in the box office chart with a movie where he is in the leading role.
