MTV: Box Office Report

It was something of a hollow victory this weekend for "The Expendables 2," which held on to the #1 spot during the weakest box office of the year so far, signaling the end of the summer blockbuster season.

Late August is generally a bad time for theaters, and this one was particularly disappointing. "The Bourne Legacy" also held on to its spot at #2, thanks to a crop of underperforming newcomers: "Premium Rush," "Hit and Run" and horror flick "The Apparition," which didn't even manage to crack the top 10.
