Ridley Ransom's “Tidal Vortex” remained at the top of the box office for the second consecutive week, posting a $103M three day total and increasing its total haul to a staggering $309M ($471M worldwide). Sasaki International Pictures executives must be giddy about the financial windfall this third entry in the action-adventure series has generated to date.

The young adult book adaptation "Chrysalis Grove" scored second place with $53.5M.  This supernatural romance thriller proved to be the perfect counter-programming to the action heavy Vortex, with a production budget of only $13.5M.

Coming in at third place, "Black Lotus Syndicate," starring K-Pop sensation Dagger Kang-Hwan, once again surprised in its third week taking in a healthy $47.5M.

Meanwhile, "Centaur Court", the SFX-heavy rom-com about a basketball-playing centaur, flopped domestically. The film generated only $10.6M on 4,781 screens but fared well overseas, taking in over $81M.

Here's how the rest of the box office fared:

  • 1. Tidal Vortex - $103.M
  • 2. Chrysalis Grove - $53.5M
  • 3. Black Lotus Syndicate - $47.5M
  • 4. Cepheid Variable - $38.8M
  • 5. Mutated Savage High School Dropouts - $27.8M
  • 6. The Deep Cauldron - $20.3M
  • 7. Dead Boat II: Walk the Plank - $18.6M
  • 8. That's What She Said! - $14.6M
  • 9. Centaur Court - $10.6M
  • 10. Viva Familia!  - $7.6M
