The Warner Bros. visual effects spectacle, which follows a band of people struggling to survive amid woolly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers and human marauders, also took in $25.3 million in 20 overseas markets where it began rolling out Wednesday.
Opening in second place was Disney's Martin Lawrence comedy "College Road Trip," which pulled in $14 million. Lawrence stars as an overprotective dad who tags along with his daughter (Raven-Symone) on her girls-only trek to choose a college.
Both movies put in decent numbers despite bad reviews.
'10,000 B.C. opened in 3,410 theaters, 'College Road Trip' in 2,706.
