Universal's Battleship opened at No 2 with $25.4m domestically, adding to the $226.8m the board-game adaptation has earned overseas since launching in April.
Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy The Dictator debuted in third-place with $17.4m for the weekend. Since opening Wednesday, the Paramount release has taken in $24.5m.
