This weekend, Adam Shankman’s new movie musical “Rock of Ages” hit theaters to mixed reviews from critics. While many praised it for it’s fun and quirky musical nature, others nailed it for it’s lack of content and soul. To those critics, I say “HELLO! It’s a musical!” I personally cannot wait to see Tom Cruise rock the stage as rock star Stacey Jaxx. Despite it’s high anticipation, the film couldn’t find it’s way to number one falling behind heavy hitters Madagascar 3 and Prometheus.

Another new film opening this weekend was Adam Sandler’s comedy, “That’s My Boy.” Despite the fully loaded casting including SNL’s latest send-off, Andy Samberg, they couldn’t manage to make a dent in the weekend’s box office results landing at #5 in the top ten. Performing just above them is the action packed Snow White and the Huntsman. Check out the weekend’s box office results below.

Find out the weekend’s top results after the jump.

The early estimates are in for this weekend at the box office and it it is ‘Madascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted‘ that is taking the top spot with an estimated $60.5 million. The this third instalment of the series and is only slightly below what ‘Madagascar 2′ brought in. The film also boasts a great approval rating so word of mouth on the film is and will be great.

Even though a “family film” took the top spot, the highly anticipated R-Rated film ‘Prometheus‘ wasn’t too far behind, opening this weekend with an estimated $50 million. This film, starring Charlize Theron (whom I love and have personally dubbed to be the next Meryl Streep) has received good ratings and word of mouth as well.

Although now only in select theatres, ‘The Hunger Games‘ has now reached $400 million domestically since it opened, still trailing quite a ways behind ‘The Avengers‘. See how much the super hero film has brought in since opening and what other films made the top 10 list below. Also, find out what two movies I watched on iTunes this weekend as well!

This weekend, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman‘ opened in theaters and not surprisingly took the top spot at the box office. The highly anticipated film starring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart brought in an impressive estimated $56.2 million this weekend. I haven’t yet seen the film, but it’s definitely high up on my list of must-see movies.

Coming in second place this weekend was ‘Men In Black 3,’ holding up surprising well after debuting last weekend. The film brought in an estimated $29.3 million this weekend, bringing it’s total to $112.3 million. Aside from MIB 3, it’s ‘The Avengers‘ that continues to be the blockbuster of the year. The film brought in an additional $20.2 million this weekend, bringing it’s total to a ridiculous $552.7 million. Some people are getting filthy rich off this movie. LOL.

Did you see any movies in theaters this weekend that you have something to say about? Have you seen all three of these movies? If so, which one was your favorite? Check out the top 10 films below and share your thoughts in the comments.

The early estimates for this weekend of movie watching at the box office has come out and it looks like ‘Men In Black 3‘ has come out on top. I couldn’t resist including “bitch slap” in my title, making reference to Will Smith recently slapping that reporter for kissing him.

Critics weren’t sure if ‘MIB 3′ would be able to hold up to ‘The Avengers‘, who after this weekend are at an estimated whopping $513.6 million since opening in theaters. That is just bonkers! This weekend, ‘MIB 3′ took the top spot with $55 million, while ‘The Avengers’ brought in just under $37 million.

Creepy thriller, ‘Chernobyl Diaries‘ opened this weekend with a modest $8 million. I guess people weren’t in the mood to get spooked this weekend. Check out how the other films did in the list below.

This weekend, the highly anticipated board game turned feature film “Battleship” hit theatres in North America. After a rocking turn out and record breaking numbers overseas, many critics expected the Hasbro creation to overturn the reign of “The Avengers.” However, the powers of Taylor Kitsch and Rihanna were no match for the superheros and only came in second place with just over $25 million. That’s just over half over what they were projected to bring in. What else opened this weekend?

Sascha Baren Cohen’s new film “The Dictator” also debuted this weekend at the box office. Not unlike his previous runaway hits, Cohen continues to shock audiences while making them laugh with his unique blend of humor and political satire. The film came in third place this weekend grossing just over $24 million. A comedy that hit theatres on Friday was the book turned film, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” which features a slew of stars – too many to name actually. Despite the huge names behind the project, the film failed to impress and came in fifth place behind “Dark Shadows.” Check out the weekend’s box office results below.

This weekend, it was unclear on Friday if Johnny Depp’s new film Dark Shadows was going to be able to “over shadow” the success of Marvel’s comic book hero flick The Avengers. “Shadows” had a strong midnight showing casting the theory that it was possible this remake of a British soap opera could have what it takes to hit number one over the weekend. However, a band of superheros can’t be denied the number one spot once again as they rose above all competition bringing in a staggering $103 million for a two week total of over $350 million. In a shocking statistic, The Avengers has accumulated almost the same amount of dollars in two weeks that the The Hunger Games did in 8 weeks. That’s quite the feat and a whole lotta money.

Dark Shadows didn’t disappoint at the box office however. It brought in a strong $28.8 million well above the third place film and former two week number one, Think Like A Man. It’s looking like next weekend will be the true box office battle when the action adventure film, Battleship takes on The Avengers at the box office. The Hasbro board game turned feature film has already grossed a ton of dollars overseas so it’ll be interesting to see if it can perform just as well over here in North America.

It’s no surprise that The Avengers, which opened in theaters this weekend, has broken records. With ample promotion, great reviews, and positive word of mouth, the superheros were able to accomplish some record breaking feats this weekend.

So far the film has brought in an estimated $80.5 million (which includes $18.7 million from midnight shows on Friday) and $69.7 million on Saturday. The estimates for today (Sunday) are $50.1 million which means the film will slay the $169.2 million opening-weekend record that ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2‘ previously held. This makes The Avengers the fastest film to hit $200 million domestically, and the $69.7 million Saturday gross is the highest of all time. Nicely done, Marvel!

Have you seen The Avengers yet? I still have to see it, but from what I’ve heard and of course Tommy‘s rave review, it’s a must see. Check out how the other films did this weekend in the Top 10 list below.

That “Think Like A Man” reign just won’t let up. For real. For a second week in a row, the African-American led comedy is breaking down doors and taking names, facing the critics who in the past have said a movie of this nature couldn’t slay the box office. WRONG! The film once again hit #1 in the weekend estimates beating out a few movies who were expected to have strong openings.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits” is a stop motion, animated family-feature and in my experience watching box office results, it’s hard to compete with a family film. However, this little Sony Gem was only able to nab the second place spot. It did however climb above Zac Efron and crew’s “The Lucky One” which fell to #3.

The shocking result for me is the highly anticipated “The Five-Year Engagement” courtesy of the producers of “Bridesmaids”. I was really expecting this film to open strong but was only able to nab the #5 spot in the weekend top ten. Other openers included “Safe” starring Jason Statham and Catherine Chan and the literary-based feature “The Raven” starring John Cusack. Check out more results below.
