Super 8 Wins First Place at the Box Office

Box Office: Super 8 Finishes First

Apparently all the hype paid off: J.J. Abrams's mystery-laden Super 8 came in first at the box office this weekend, opening with a decent $37 million. It was followed by last week's winner, the Marvel prequel X-Men: First Class, which earned $25 million.


The Hangover Part II hung in there, coming in third with $18.5 million, and the animated Kung Fu Panda 2 was right behind it with $16.6 million. Closing up the top five was Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, with a haul of $10.8 million.
