5:02 PM 3/30/2014 by Logan Falk
Bad puns notwithstanding, the box office was very good to one of our new releases, which earned a goodly amount above its predicted gross range. The other films, holdouts and new releases alike, did okay as well, but Noah most definitely won the day.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman
Neither of this weekend’s new releases took the top spot on the charts, which isn’t entirely surprising, given that most critics were disappointed with the quality of the films. Instead, last week’s new releases took the opportunity to enjoy a second weekend atop the charts.

300: Rise of an Empire
This weekend was very good to both of the new releases, despite the disparity in ratings (and quality, to be honest) between them—their projected earnings were generous to begin with, but they were able to make above even these relatively large predictions over the weekend (probably owing to the lackluster releases of the last couple weeks).

New in Theaters: '300: Rise of an Empire,' 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman'

300: Rise of an Empire
Rather than the overall cinematic disappointment of the two previous weekends, this batch of new releases offers something a little better—a mixed bag. There is one certified “fresh” release, so that’s something, at least.
