Jackie Robinson biopic, “42” surpassed the competition this weekend, giving Warner Brother studios its first hit of 2013. Directed by Brian Helgeland, the film was forecast to earn about $20 million and wound up taking in $27.3 million.

The weekend’s other wide opener, horror spoof “Scary Movie 5,” was second and took in $15 million, well below what other entries in the franchise have done for the Weinstein Company. Holdovers “The Croods” and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” were third and fourth, with $13.2 million and $10.8 million respectively. Last week’s No. 1 film, “Evil Dead,” was fifth with $9.5 million.
