Bumped to second place was 42 with $18 million, while The Croods stayed steady in third place, adding $9.5 million to its total. Scary Movie 5 made $6.3 million, and G.I.

Home run! Pardon the baseball puns, but Jackie Robinson biopic 42 was No. 1 at the box office this weekend with $27.3 million. Fellow new release Scary Movie 5 came in second with $15.2 million, followed by animated family film The Croods with $13.2 million. In fourth place came action sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation with $10.8 million, and last week's No. 1, horror remake Evil Dead, rounded out the top five with $9.5 million. Disconnect also came out this weekend in a handful of theaters, earning $124,000.
Whether you're a sports fanatic or an indie movie lover or you just want to see True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard shirtless on the big screen, there's a movie for you hitting theaters this weekend. Check out pictures of the Jackie Robinson story, 42; Terrence Malick's latest, To the Wonder; tech thriller Disconnect; and last, but (maybe) not least, Scary Movie 5. Which will you be seeing?
Like with many horror franchises, it seems as if Scary Movie films keep getting made no matter how bad they get. The latest installment, which is the fifth in the series, takes aim at Paranormal Activity, Black Swan, and Inception, just to name a few.
