LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Resident Evil: Retribution" ruled the box office this weekend, taking in an estimated $21.1 million.

The fifth film in the Sony Screen Gems action franchise, starring Milla Jovovich, debuted at No. 1, the studio reported Sunday.

That topped the 3-D re-release of the Disney Pixar animated favorite "Finding Nemo," which opened in second place with $17.5 million.

And in limited release, "The Master" had a staggeringly strong opening, making $729,745 on just five screens in New York and Los Angeles, The Weinstein Co. reported. That's a record-smashing per-screen average of $145,949. The Paul Thomas Anderson drama stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as a charismatic cult leader and Joaquin Phoenix as his wayward protege.
