42 Scores A Home Run At US Box Office
Scary Movie 5 lands second

Tom Cruise might be dominating the box office charts here in the UK and elsewhere in the world, but he and Oblivion have to wait until next weekend to arrive in the US. Meanwhile, one of the country’s sporting legends proved to have incredible drawing power as Jackie Robinson biopic 42 scored a win in the charts with $27.5 million.

Critically mauled spoof sequel Scary Movie 5 couldn’t compete, though it earned $15.1 million in second place, which means it should at least make its budget back and plans are probably already being drawn up (in crayon) for another. That’s a scarier concept that most actual horror movies.

The Croods, which is turning out to be a winner for DreamWorks Animation, stayed in third with $13.2 million, while G.I. Joe: Retaliation fell to fourth with $10.8 million and Evil Dead rounded out the top five, earning $9.5 million.

Jurassic Park 3D slipped slightly, falling to sixth place and $8.8 million, while Olympus Has Fallen was down to seventh with $7.2 million. At eighth we find Oz The Great And Powerful still earning, adding $4.9 million for a running US total of $219.4 million. Ninth was Tyler Perry’s Temptation ($4.5 million) and bringing up the read was The Place Beyond The Pines, sneaking into the top 10 after an expanded release gave it $4 million.

To see a baseball icon take out some terrible jokes in the full charts, head to Box Office Mojo.

Harrison is Back
I am so happy to see Harrison Ford playing roles his age, and not having to cling on to the Firewall type roles he seemed to be getting typecast in, and having to cling on to the "dad in a crisis" type roles he was so good at in the 90's. This could very much be the 2nd coming for him. Similar to the role Sean Connery had in The Untouchables. I can't wait to see this film. And hope he gets an Oscar nom too! More
