'Megamind' is #1 at the box office!

After a disappointing few weekends, the US box office enjoyed a healthy bump in the last three days as three new movies opened wide to successful returns. Topping the charts was DreamWorks’ latest 3D ‘toon, Megamind, with the superhero comedy earning $47.6 million, putting it ahead of Todd Phillips’ new comedy Due Date. The Robert Downey Jr/Zach Galifianakis road trip pic nabbed a strong $33.5 million, winning second place.

Tyler Perry’s latest, For Colored Girls, was third with a solid $20.1 million. Rounding out the top five were Red, which is holding strong, and dropped just one place to fourth with $8.8 million, despite having been out for a month now, and Saw 3D, which toppled from the top to land in fifth, adding $8.2 million for a running total of $38.8 million.

But though Jigsaw and co are still ahead of Paranormal Activity 2 in terms of chart placing, the scary sequel is easily outperforming the torture title, adding $7.2 million to a current total of $77.2 million after three weeks. They’re both put to shame by Jackass 3D in seventh, which made $5 million this weekend and is well over $110 million.

Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter slipped to eighth with $4.1 million and Secretariat dropped to ninth with $4 million. Finally, in 10th, we find The Social Network, which will likely leave the top 10 next week and made $3.6 million.
