"Argo" Tops Box-Office, "Cloud Atlas" Flops

"Cloud Atlas" from the Wachowskis ("The Matrix" films) and Tom Tykwer ("Run Lola Run") took in $9.5 million for the No. 3 spot. The Tom Hanks/Halle Berry-starrer was budgeted for $100 million, so this film, as creative-forward as it was, flopped. ("Cloud Atlas" movie review)

Meanwhile, newcomer "Fun Size" also failed to bring in the fun at the box-office. The Paramount/Nickelodeon flick starring Victoria Justice debuted at No. 10 with $4 million. This film, directed by Josh Schwartz from a 2010 Black List script by Max Werner, was only budgeted for $14 million, so it would be easier for "Fun Size" to recoup its money comapred to "Cloud Atlas."
