The fifth Resident Evil movie came out of the gate at the top of the box office, but it couldn't beat the franchise's three previous films.
Resident Evil: Retribution grossed an estimated $21.2 million, less than than the second, third and fourth installments in the franchise, according to Box Office Mojo. The fifth movie only beat the first Resident Evil, which brought in $17.7 million back in 2002, but the new film sold fewer tickets.
The week's other major new release, Finding Nemo 3-D, caught $17.5 million to come in second. Last week's No. 1, The Possession, took in $5.8 million. Lawless followed in fourth place with $4.2 million. ParaNorman drew $3.04 million to grab fifth place.
