In at #1 this weekend as expected is "Watchmen" which made $55.7 Million. Lower than the expected $70 Million but still a decent figure considering the movie was pretty much a snoozefest. Even a totally naked blue man with a rockin bod couldn't keep the film from boring the audience but maybe it's just me.

In at #2 and seeming to drop off a cliff is Tyler Perry's comedy "Madea Goes to Jail" which brought in $8.8 Million to bring it's total to $76.5 Million.

Taking third place this week is the thriller "Taken" which brought in $7.45 Million.

In fourth place is "Slumdog Millionaire" which continues to get "Slumdog Love" with $6.92 Million to bring it's total to a whopping $125 Million. So much for it being an indie flick, those are action movie numbers.

Rounding out the top 5 is the film that seems to not want to go away. Or maybe it's just a sign as to how depressed folks really are about the economy since they keep going to see this film, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop." The film brought in $4.2 Million dollars this weekend, bringing it's total to $134 Million.
