Solid first-place finish for new release 'Green Hornet'

Less than stellar reviews don't seem to keep people from seeing big releases at the box office. Case in point: "The Green Hornet" had a great debut (compared with what other films brought in this weekend), and "Little Fockers," "Yogi Bear" and "Season of the Witch" are still in the top 10.

From The Associated Press:
