US Box Office: January 13 – 15, 2011

Universal Pictures’ Contraband reigned supreme at the US box office this weekend. The modestly budgeted action-thriller starring Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale raked in an impressive $28.8M to nab the top stop.

A re-issued, 3D conversion of Beauty And The Beast proved popular with audiences, to the tune of $23.5M, while other new entry, the musical-comedy Joyful Noise, landed at four with a more than solid $13.8M.

Elsewhere, last week’s winner The Devil Inside ($9.2M) failed to entice audiences for a second week, and We Bought A Zoo clung to the last spot with $6.8M.
