A 'Super' No. 1 movie

What might surprise me most about this weekend's blockbuster numbers is that "Fast Five" is still in the top 10. Didn't anyone see The Onion's interview with the screenwriter? For a 5-year-old, that kid apparently makes pretty good movies.

I'm somewhat surprised that "Judy Moody" opened so low. Usually family-friendly movies are big box office draws -- but maybe not as much without the names "Pixar" or "Disney" behind them.

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. “Super 8,” $37 million ($6.7 million international). (Review by The News-Herald's Mark Meszoros)
