Limitless lived up to its title in its opening weekend by coming in first at the box office. The dizzying drug drama starring Bradley Cooper earned a total of $19 million, besting the rest of the weekend's offerings. In second place was the Johnny Depp-voiced animated film Rango with $15.3 million.
In third place was last weekend's champion, action flick Battle: Los Angeles, with a total of $14.6 million. Unlike Limitless, the other new releases didn't fare so well, but still managed to make it into the top five. The Lincoln Lawyer came in the fourth spot with $13.4 million, and goofball alien comedy Paul was right behind it with $13.2 million.
