The family friendly flick, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” continued to shine at movie theaters over the weekend. The 3-D animation raked in around $24.6 million to hold on to the number one spot at the domestic Box Office for the second straight week.

In second place, the new Bruce Willis film, “Surrogates” with around $15 million. A bigger opening was expected for this picture, which has an impressive promotional campaign and interesting story line.  The action/thriller is about a futuristic world where human contact takes place mainly through surrogate robots. “Surrogates” may have suffered due to a recent string of sci-fi films at theaters.  

Another new movie, the re-make of the 1980’s musical “Fame” followed in third with around $10 million. Matt Damon’s “The Informant!” came in fourth with an estimated $6.9 million and rounding out the top five, Tyler Perry’s melodrama “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” with around $4.7 million.
