Warner's 300: Rise of an Empire grossed $3.88 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for a fourth consecutive day. The high-profile 3D action sequel was down 66 percent from Sunday's performance. 300: Rise of an Empire has grossed a healthy $48.92 million through four days of release and is set to surpass the $50 million mark today. The film is currently running 38 percent behind the $78.50 million four-day start of 2007's 300 and 36 percent ahead of the $36.03 million four-day take of 2012's Wrath of the Titans.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman placed in second with $2.23 million. The 3D computer animated film from Fox and DreamWorks Animation was down 77 percent from Sunday; a sure sign of just how heavily the film is skewing towards family audiences. Mr. Peabody & Sherman has grossed $34.44 million in four days, which is towards the lower end of expectations. That places the film 28 percent behind the $47.84 million four-day start of last year's The Croods and 9 percent ahead of the $31.61 million four-day take of 2009's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
