It pays to have big name celebrities!
The Dreamworks animated film, Megamind, starring Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, and Jonah Hill took over the box office this weekend, stealing the number one spot with $47.7 million.
The Robert Downey, Jr. and Zach Galifianakis' road-trip comedy, Due Date also had a strong opening, taking the number two spot with $33.5 million.
The Tyler Perry drama For Colored Girls with a huge ensemble cast, including Janet Jackson and Whoopi Goldberg, took in an expected $20.1 million, which also did fairly well considering the heavy story lines that may have driven some audiences away.
The Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren action film, Red remained in the top five, coming in fourth place with $8.9 million.
Horror-flick Saw 3D took a big drop, rounding out the top five, with $8.2 million.
