Robots over Gosling and Clooney? Ugh.

I'm disappointed at how the top two movies at this weekend's box office finished. I saw "The Ides of March" last week and loved it. I read the review for "Real Steel" and thought it sounded terrible. What is the movie-going public thinking????

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. “Real Steel,” $27.3 million ($22.1 million international). (Review by The AP's David Germain)
2. “The Ides of March,” $10.4 million. (Review by The News-Herald's Mark Meszoros)
3. “Dolphin Tale,” $9.2 million.
4. “Moneyball,” $7.5 million. (Review by The AP's Christy Lemire)
5. “50/50,” $5.5 million. (Review by Lemire)
6. “Courageous,” $4.6 million.
7. “The Lion King,” $4.55 million ($7.3 million international).
8. “Dream House,” $4.5 million.
9. “What’s Your Number?”, $3.1 million ($2.8 million international). (Review by Germain)
10. “Abduction,” $2.9 million ($4 million international).
