What? Immortals won the weekend? Okay, this one surprised me, I thought this film was going to be under the radar, guess I was wrong. People wanted some R-rated God like action this weekend. I’m sure the 3D charged helped but Immortals sliced and stabbed its way to the top with $32 million. Glad to see a big time action film like this doing well. The brain melting comedy(can you call it that?) Jack and Jill landed in second with $26 million, while Puss in Boots was right behind it. Boots has broken the $100 million dollar mark and has proved it has some legs, even if they are small cat legs.

Tower Heist dropped to fourth but still made a strong $13 million, maybe the film has been getting some good word of mouth. Sadly J. Edgar could only muster up $11 million, but it was on a lot less screens than the other top films. It’s possible as award season churns the film will grow some legs. Paranormal Activity 3 broke the $100 million dollar mark, which basically makes it clear a fourth film is coming. The next couple of weeks should be interested to see which films have the legs and which drop out as more films fill the screens as the holidays approach.

Here is the list…

1. Immortals $32 million

2. Jack and Jill $26 million

3. Puss in Boots $25.5 million

4. Tower Heist $13.2 million

5. J. Edgar $11.6 million

6. A very Harold and Kumar Christmas $5.9 million

7. In Time $4.1 million

8. Paranormal Activity 3 $3.6 million

9. Footloose $2.7 million

10. Real Steel $2.1 million
