Coming in at No. 2 is the animated adventure "Up" with
$30.5 million, followed by the thriller "Taking of Pelham 1 2 3" at No. 3 with $25 million, the history-themed comedy "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" at No. 4 with $9.6 million and the big-screen re-do of TV's "Land of the Lost" at No. 5 with $5.6 million.

Rounding out the top tier are Eddie Murphy's latest family picture "Imagine That" at No. 6 with $5.7 million, the "Star Trek" franchise re-boot at No. 7 with $5.6 million, the science-fiction action movie "Terminator Salvation" at No. 8 with $4.7 million, the Vatican-set mystery "Angels & Demons" at No. 9 with $4.2 million and the horror flick "Drag Me to Hell" at No. 10 with $3.9 million.
