Sixth is Fast & Furious 6, which earned another $4.7 million this weekend, declining 51%. It has a domestic cume of $228.4 million, and has crossed the $425 million mark overseas, all against a budget of $160 million.

One of the few summer misses so far, The Internship, finishes in seventh, as it hasn’t been able to find an audience after a soft opening frame. The comedy grossed only $3.4 million and fell 52% this weekend. The $60 million film has now earned only $38.4 million.

Eighth is The Purge, which opened strong at $34 million, but is fading fast. Last weekend it earned $8.3 million, and this weekend it found only $3.4 million. That’s another big drop of 59%, but remember, The Purge cost only $3 million to make, and has a gross so far of $59.4 million.

Star Trek Into Darkness finishes in ninth place as it earns another $3 million in weekend six. It declined 52% and has a domestic cume of $216.6 million, with a similar amount coming overseas. Finally, in tenth is Iron Man 3, which hangs around for one final weekend on the charts. The early summer blockbuster earned $2.2 million and has now run its domestic total up over $400 million.

Eleventh place goes to The Bling Ring, the new film from Sofia Coppola. Not critically loved, and starring only Emma Watson, this one did not have a lot to hang its hat on. It earned a slight $2 million this weekend from 650 screens, and had an disappointing venue average of $3,077.

Overall this weekend, the box office is hot, scorching, and on fire. The top 12 films earned a remarkable $230.6 million, 47% ahead of the same weekend last year when Brave led the top 10 to $157.4 million. Next weekend could be a down weekend, as the openers are both originals. Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock bring The Heat, while Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx star in White House Down.
