Coming in second place was Will Smith’s Hancock, which took in $33 million.

In third was the 3-D family adventure, Journey to the Center of the Earth, which took in $20.6 million.

The other big opened, Meet Dave, performed extremely poorly. The Eddie Murphy comedy made just $5.3 million opening in seventh.

WALL-E had another great weekend taking in $18.5 million.

Next weekend marks the big release of The Dark Knight, which is expected to dominate everything.
