Neither “Unfinished Business” nor “Chappie” wowed at the weekend box office, but one performed notably worse than the other.

“Unfinished Business,” that clear flop, opened with an estimated $4.8 million. The paltry opening weekend total, which represents another disappointing take for a Vince Vaughn vehicle, positions at the film at #10 on the weekend chart.

“Chappie,” meanwhile, claims #1 despite its unremarkable $13.3 million gross.

“Focus,” last week’s winner, slips to #2 with $10.0 million. New release “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” earns #3 with $8.6 million, while “Kingsman: The Secret Service” (#4, $8.3 million) and “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” (#5, $7.0 million) complete the top five.
