Family films continue on a hot streak at the Box Office. This weekend, the animated 3D “G-Force” debuted as the number one flick in the nation with an estimated take of $32 million. The cast of voices of this guinea pigs comedy include Nicholas Cage and Penelope Cruz.
Last week’s top flick “Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince” dropped to second place with an estimated $30 million. Still, the two week run by the latest Harry Potter movie has raked in more than $200 million in the U.S. alone. A new romantic comedy, “The Ugly Truth” grabbed third with around $27 million. “The Ugly Truth” stars Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler. Some reviewers slammed this romantic tale for being too predictable. Apparently, moviegoers ignored those lukewarm reviews.
Another new movie, “Orphan,” a horror/thriller about a 9-year-old bad seed, scared up about $12.7 million for fourth, and rounding out the top five, the 3D animation “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” with $8.2 million.
