Gnomeo and Juliet is tops!

Disney's Gnomeo and Juliet pulled a surprise at the box office, taking the number one spot from Owen Wilson's Hall Pass.

Gnomeo and Juliet

The box-office weekend might have been a bit slow, but let's not steal any thunder from Gnomeo & Juliet. While the Oscars were being awarded, the Disney flick about love between two gnomes was sitting at the number one box-office spot, taking in $14.2 million.

The surprise here is that it's been out for three weeks and managed to surpass Owen Wilson's debut of Hall Pass. Wilson's flick, about wives giving their men a week off, came in at the number two spot with $13.4 million. Liam Neeson's heart-pounding movie Unknown went down to the number three spot with $12.4 million from its perch atop the box office just last week.

Rounding out the top five was the comedy Just Go With It with $11.1 million and the teen thriller I Am Number Four with $11 million.

The Justin Bieber biopic-concert film, Never Say Never, is still chugging along at the number six spot with $9 million while Oscar winner for Best Picture, The King's Speech, added to its reign with $7.6 million. Taking the number eight slot was Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, earning $7.5 million.

Nicolas Cage's debut for Drive Angry bowed at number nine with a disappointing $5.1 million. The Roommate rounded out the top ten with $2 million.

Have you caught the surprise number one box-office movie, Gnomeo and Juliet? If you haven't, trust us, there's nothing like love between two gnomes.
