The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, starring Ben Barnes and Liam Neeson, opened at the top of the US box office this weekend, taking an estimated $24.5M, but failed to meet many analysts’ predictions.

It’s poor opening weekend means it has a long way to go to break-even and reclaim the $140M production budget.

Sony’s action-thriller The Tourist, starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, landed in second place, bringing in an estimated $17M, again falling short of expectations.

Disney’s Tangled dropped to third taking $14.6M, bringing it’s three-week domestic total to $115.6M.

In it’s fourth week, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 earned another $8.5, reaching an incredible four-week domestic total of $257.7M.

Unstoppable rounded off the top five with an estimated $3.8M, bringing it’s domestic total to $74.3M.

Darren Aronofsky’s psychological ballet thriller Black Swan climbed to six, earning a very impressive $3.3M in only 90 locations.

Completing the top ten were Burlesque ($3.2M), Love and Other Drugs ($3M), Due Date ($2.6M) and Megamind ($2.5M).
