In fact, if studio estimates for the September 6-8, 2013, weekend are on target, Riddick's per-theater average barely surpassed the $6,000 mark: $6,010 per location, to be exact.

Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Fast Five Fast Five, starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Jordana Brewster, added $4.62 million on Wednesday, May 4, at the North American box office, according to Box Office Mojo.
