Mila Jovovich and the sequel “Resident Evil: Retribution” earned $21.1 million over the weekend, grabbing the No. 1 spot at the box office. The film, which follows a female warrior fighting flesh-eating zombies infected with a deadly virus, earned a remarkable $50 million internationally in addition to its domestic numbers.

Following just behind in second place was Pixar’s “Finding Nemo 3D,” which was rereleased last week in 3D. The Post’s Jen Chaney recommended watching the movie at home on the couch instead, but moviegoers largely decided otherwise. The movie grossed $17.5 million over the weekend.

Here’s a list of the top 10 movies at the weekend box office:

1. "Resident Evil: Retribution," $21.1 million

2. "Finding Nemo 3D," $17.5 million

3. "The Possession," $5.8 million

4. "Lawless," $4.2 million
