In a very busy weekend at the Box Office, Toy Story 3 makes it two-for-two weeks on top with $59 million. In its second week now, the film has made $226 million domestically. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has earned an astonishing 98% Tomatoes Incredible.

Adam Sandler-headlined comedy Grown Ups debuts in second with $41 million, which easily on any other weekend would place it on top, but there is no denying the earning power of a good film with cross-generational appeal and the power of a franchise.  Despite terrible reviews, this is still a strong showing.

Performing below expectations is Fox's Knight & Day which debuted in third with $20.5 million. The film which reunited Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz for the first time since Vanilla Sky, had a special Wednesday opening and has pulled in $27.8 million to date. This adds further fuel to the rumour that the public has lost interest in Cruise as a leading man.  Or perhaps Fox should start inviting Bloggers to their Advanced Screenings if they'd like a bit more positive buzz.  hint, hint.

Sony Pictures' The Karate Kid continues to perform very well in fourth, with $15.4 million in fourth sport. Made for $40 million, the revival of the '80s franchise has earned a fantastic $135.6 million in just three weeks.

The A-Team has finally made back its production costs, placing fifth this weekend with $6 million,.  This pushes it past the $110 million mark worldwide. The film was made for exactly that same amount.
