Matt Damon's sci-fi parable about the dangers facing the 99% in the distant future ended up redistributing some wealth into its own pockets this weekend, as "Elysium" topped the box office with an estimated $30.5 million according to Film.com.

That was enough to edge out Jennifer Aniston's R-rated comedy "We're the Millers," which brought in a strong $26.6 million. Disney's "Cars" spinoff "Planes" debuted in third place with $22.5 million, while "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" rounded out a crowded field of newcomers with an estimated $14.6 million.
