Moviegoers Invest in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps!" Sequel Debuts at No. 1! See Complete Top 10 


Director Oliver Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" opened as the No. 1 movie of the weekend with a solid $19 million total. The sequel to Stone's iconic film about the world of Wall Street, the film reunites the director and Michael Douglas, who won an Academy Award for playing Gordon Gekko. The new film features Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin, Carey Mulligan, and Frank Langella. (Check out my review of "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" right here).

Debuting at No. 2 is Zack Snyder's "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole." Based on the first three books of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series by author Kathryn Lasky, the 3-D animated tale features a talented voice cast headed by Jim Sturgess, Ryan Kwanten, Helen Mirren, Geoffrey Rush, and David Wenham among others. The Warner Bros. tale sold $16.3 million worth of box-office tickets. (Watch my review of "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" right here.

Previous weekend's box-office champ, "The Town," also from Warner Bros., fell to No. 3 with a still-strong $16 million, raising its 10-day total to $49.1 million. Meanwhile, Sony's teen romp, "Easy A," starring Emma Stone, finished at No. 4 with $10.7 million lifting its 10-day total to $32.8 million.

Disney's new romantic comedy, "You Again," starring Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Sigourney Weaver, debuted poorly at No. 5 with a flop-worthy $8.3 million. Yikes!
