Justin Timberlake is taking back the top spot for the second time this year. According toHitsDailyDouble, the “Suit & Tie” singer has earned the no. 1 spot again with the release of his 20/20 Experience – Part 2 of 2, selling 348,390 in its first week. The news follows a successful comeback after he pushed 968,000 units in its opening week with The 20/20 Experience this past March.
On the album sales chart, Drake’s third studio effort Nothing Was The Same gets bumped down to second place in its second week, followed by New Zealand’s teen songstress Lorde with her debut Pure Heroine. Check the full rundown here.
Justin tweeted to thank the fans:
Sci-Fi epic set a new October record with $55.5 million, while Timberlake’s ‘Runner Runner’ brought in just $7.6 million.
The weight of “Gravity” was just too heavy for Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck over the weekend.
Filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi epic crushed the box office record for October with a $55.5 million weekend, displacing 2011’s “Paranormal Activity 3″ and providing career-best openings for Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in the process.
Remaining at a beyond impressive 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes “Tomatometer” as the weekend concluded, “Gravity” enjoyed the combination of critical consensus and word of mouth about its impressive 3-D IMAX visuals.
3-D ticket sales accounted for 71 percent of that $55.5 million total, with IMAX showings contributing roughly 20 percent. In addition to the heavy-duty emotional work poured into the performances (Bullock recently talked about that scene with MTV News), there are many other noteworthy facts to consider surrounding its record breaking weekend. The movie isn’t a sequel, or remake or an adaptation. The female lead is 49 years old; the male lead is 52.
Bullock’s previous career-best opening was just a few months ago, when the action-comedy “Heat” started with $39.1 million. Clooney’s new #2 stretches all the way back to 1997’s ill-fated “Batman and Robin,” which kicked off with $42.8 million.
Ben Affleck will step inside the Batman suit in 2015’s followup to “Man of Steel,” but for now, he’ll have to look forward to next year’s release of “Gone Girl” (directed by David Fincher) and his own adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s “Live By Night” (which Affleck co-wrote and will both direct and star in) because there isn’t much to celebrate about “Runner Runner” now.
Despite the star power of Justin Timberlake and Affleck and an association with producer Leonardo DiCaprio, “Runner Runner” stumbled with one of the worst openings ever for a movie debuting on more than 3,000 screens (the #1 record for that belongs to “Hoot,” which featured future Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Clark Gregg in a small role). “Runner Runner” made just $7.6 million at the domestic box office. In stark contrast with “Gravity,” the gambling drama sat at just 8 percent on Rotten Tomatoes on Sunday.
With “Runner Runner” barely reaching #3, that left the #2 spot wide open for last week’s champ, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.” The kid-friendly sequel made another $21.5 million for a two week total of $60.5 million. Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Prisoners” was #4 with $5.7 million got a three week total near $48 million. Chris Hemsworth’s 1970s-set racing drama “Rush” rounded out the Top 5 with $4.4 million for a somewhat lackluster total domestic gross of $18 million.
Justin may be having an awesome week here in the states, but the uk fans arent as nice.
Sister act HAIM bested Justin Timberlake this week.
The trio’s “Days Are Gone” album finally debuted at No. 1 in the U.K., dethroning Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience — 2 Of 2.”
According to the Official Charts Company, Timberlake led album sales by 700, but HAIM gained momentum Thursday night (closing the sales gap by a mere 28). By Saturday night, the sisters came out victoriously with 2,100 sales.
HAIM’s “Days Are Gone” includes the tracks “Don’t Save Me,” “The Wire” and “Falling” — all of which are on the U.K. top 40. “The Wire” fell from No. 16 last week to No. 24, whereas JT’s “Take Back The Night” jumped eight spots from 30 to 22.
The rock girl group consists of Alana, Danielle and Este Haim, as well as their drummer Dash Hutton.
In the United States, Timberlake’s album was No. 1 and sold 325,000 copies.
