‘Bourne’ tops Friday B.O. with $14 mil

Pic expected to dethrone 'Knight' in debut frame; 'Campaign' strong with $10.3 mil

Universal is proving it pays to rest on a legacy this weekend, as “The Bourne Legacy” topped Friday domestically with $14 million.

The first installment in five years, and the first to star Jeremy Renner over the titular hero played by Matt Damon, “Legacy” is expected to dethrone “The Dark Knight Rises” with a three-day haul just north of $40 million, putting the installment slightly behind 2004’s “The Bourne Supremacy.” Every prior entry in the franchise has seen a small uptick from Friday to Saturday, which is likely to continue given adult interest in “Legacy,” but won’t push the pic to overperform or set any records for the series.

Meanwhile, the youth crowd is voting for “The Campaign” with its money, earning $10.3 million Friday for Warner Bros. The laffer is headed for a weekend in the mid-$20 million range, also bumping fellow WB release “The Dark Knight Rises,” which earned $5.6 million Friday for a cume of $376.2 million.

Sony’s troubled Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones starrer “Hope Springs” grossed $4.7 million Friday for a cume of $9.2 million. Pic opened Wednesday to low numbers, and insiders are anticipating a five-day haul in the high teens. But while it isn’t a stellar start, Sony is expecting long legs for its older skewing romantic dramedy.
