By Todd Cunningham, TheWrap

The Rock's "Hercules" did better than expected and wound up with $29 million, to beat out two-time reigning champ "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," which finished third with $16.4 million. And one of Philip Seymour Hoffman's final films, "A Most Wanted Man," cracked the top ten in its limited debut.

But this weekend belonged to "Lucy," written, directed and produced by Luc Besson. The thriller about a woman who gains extraordinary brainpower after a drug implanted in her body seeps into her system, beat analysts' projections by at least $10 million, and exceeded its production budget in the first three days for Besson's EuropaCorp and distributor Universal.
