Mars Needs Moms

Movie­go­ers didn’t need Walt Dis­ney Stu­dios’ “Mars Needs Moms” over the week­end — not on this planet, anyway.

Despite a mas­sive $150 mil­lion bud­get, the ani­mated film opened to only $6.8 mil­lion, putting it in fifth place at the North Amer­i­can box office.

Mars Needs Moms made an addi­tional $2.1 mil­lion in 14 for­eign countries.

At No. 1 was Sony’s live-action Bat­tle: Los Ange­les, which opened to gross an esti­mated $36 mil­lion (with another $16.7 mil­lion in 33 for­eign countries).

The computer-animated Rango, dis­trib­uted by Para­mount, still has legs at the box office. Down just 39% from its first-place $38.1 mil­lion open­ing last week­end, it grossed $23.1 mil­lion this week­end for a strong sec­ond place.
