This weekend the Fantastic Four sequel, Rise of the Silver Surfer, "flamed on" to take the top slot at the box office, raking in an impressive $57.4 million. This just beats the first Fantastic Four movie's opening weekend which brought in $56 million last year.
In second place was Ocean's Thirteen with $19 million while Knocked Up followed behind at No. 3 with $14 million. Captain Jack Sparrow and his buddies came in 4th place with $12 million, and family flicks Surf's Up and Shrek the Third took 5th and 6th places, respectively.
Nancy Drew opened in 7th place, unfortunately, bringing in just $7 million. At least she beat out Hostel: Part II, but still, it's disappointing that Nancy didn't draw in too many viewers. Perhaps the books were not adapted for screen very well. This weekend we'll see if Evan can be Almighty enough to get the No. 1 box office slot.
