Coming in second place this week was the frosty friend adventure of Manny, Sid and Diego, Ice Age: Continental Drift. It grossed an estimated $20 million proving that kid flicks are still a top choice at the box office.
Superheroes are also all the rage this summer, and The Amazing Spider-Man proves that with its weekend gross of $11 million. The Sony reboot starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone ranks third on the weekend list of top-grossing movies.
Coming in a solid fourth with $10.3 million in returns is everyone’s favorite man-child, Ted, the teddy bear who talks like a sailor and has the maturity level of a stuffed animal. That is, of course, because he is a stuffed animal. He belongs to the character Mark Wahlberg plays with genuine idiocracy in Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s first shot at making a feature film.
Brave, the Disney/Pixar animation about a princess who doesn’t want to get married came in fifth this week with an estimated $5.7 million at the box office.
Magic Mike, the story of a stripper who just wants to “quit the biz,” stars Channing Tatum in a film that echoes his past experience as an erotic dancer. The film grossed an estimated $4.3 million and came in at number six.
Rounding out the top 10 are Savages at number seven with $3.3 million, Madea’s Witness Protection at number eight with $2.2 million, Moonrise Kingdom at number nine with $1.5 million and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted at number 10 with $1.5 million.
