Nic Cage Takes On The Rock.. And Wins

Nicholas Cage's latest movie, 'Knowing', took the top spot at the box office this weekend with an estimated $24.8 million.  This unseated last week's #1 movie 'Race To Witch Mountain' which had a drop of almost 47% which made it #4 this weekend.  The rest of the top 3 was rounded out with the other new releases, 'I Love You Man' (#2) and 'Duplicity' (#3).  The much hyped and debated 'Watchmen' dropped to #5 this week.  While it looks to clear the $100 million mark this week, this is well below what the studio and fanboys (myself included) had hoped for.  We'll discuss this more later this week as we see whether or not this will have an effect on how much studios listen to the fans when it comes to the development of popular stories and characters into movies.  Until then, here is the rest of the weekends top 10:

1. Knowing - $24.8 million
2. I Love You Man - $18+ million
3. Duplicity - $14.4 million
4. Race to Witch Mountain - $13+ million
5. Watchmen - $6.7 million
6. The Last House On The Left - $5.9 million
7. Taken - $4.1 million
8. Slumdog Millionaire - $2.7 million
9. Tyler Perry's Madea Goes To Jail - $2.5 million
10. Coraline - $2.1 million
