Boxing robots waged an admirable box office battle this weekend, even defeating a pair of ruthless politicians. Real Steel won the first place at the box office with $27.3 million, while fellow new release, political drama The Ides of March, starring Ryan Gosling and George Clooney, came in second place with a total of $10.4 million. Following them in third place was the previous box office winner, Dolphin Tale, which earned $9.2 million. Brad Pitt's baseball flick Moneyball came in No. 4 with $7.5 million, and cancer comedy 50/50, starring Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, completed the top five with 5.5 million.
