42 Hits A Box Office HOME RUN! Scary Movie 5 Does Not!

42 weekend box office

Sorry, Lindsay Lohan!

Even your toilet-clogging, crazy antics on the set of Scary Movie 5 couldn't generate it enough buzz to put it at the top of the box office for its opening weekend!

Instead, the distinct honor went to the critically-acclaimed Jackie Robinson bio-pic 42, when came in number one after making an estimated $27.3 million between Friday and today!

And that's pretty impressive in itself, seeing as the majority of movie-goers paying to see the flick were over the age of 25!

To be fair to Scary Movie 5, however, we're pretty sure everyone else below that age went to see the fifth installment of the horror movie parody franchise, as it managed to secure itself the #2 position, with $15.2 million.

Even that, however, wasn't enough to make back its production cost of $19.5 million! OUCH!

But you can see what over movies manage to fill out the rest of this weekend's box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Harrison Ford has been cast to star as the man who help Jackie Robinson break the color barrier.

Ford will play Branch Rickey, the MLB exec who signed Robinson to a minor league deal.

Two years later, Robinson signed with the Dodgers and history was made.

For his innovation and other contributions to baseball, Rickey was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1967.

The Jackie Robinson flick is yet to be titled but it has landed a big fish in Ford.

Up and comer Chadwick Boseman is slated to star as Robinson.
