Instead, "Resident Evil: Retribution," the fifth installment in the popular Milla Jovovich science-fiction thriller franchise, claimed the No. 1 position. However, both films missed industry projections. Pre-release audience polling had suggested that "Retribution" would take in around $27 million during its first weekend in theaters, but Sony Pictures estimated that the film actually opened with a decent $21.1 million. The reformatted "Finding Nemo," meanwhile, was expected to start off with roughly $30 million, but came in with just more than half of that sum: $17.5 million.
