The Croods

Emma Stone plays the epically curious Eep, a teen cavegirl with a crush on a modern boy and his hilarious tree-sloth buddy. Exploring what it means to be human, this beautiful animated film explored its way to $44.7 million at the box office.

Olympus Has Fallen

Gerard Butler plays a pumped-up, realistic bad-a**, able to single-handedly take down a brutal Korean paramilitary group. Earning $30.5 million this weekend, this action thriller will no doubt stick around past spring break.

Adding $22 million in box office takings, this prequel to The Wizard of Oz is truly magical, but how long can it stay in the top three?

The Call

This hot thriller starring Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin stuffed another $8.7 million into its car trunk this weekend, making its creepy ending even more disturbing.

While most critics panned this film, we thought Tina Fey did the best acting of her career to date. Opening to $6.4 million isn’t anything for Ms. Bossypants to get neurotic over.
