Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler are in the midst of their European promotional tour for The Bounty Hunter, and this morning they were up early for a photo call in Berlin — shop Jennifer's look here. Yesterday Jennifer wore bright pink for the Paris premiere, which came right on the heels of their romantic Saturday boat ride on the Seine. The duo posed for a photo with fans during that excursion, and things got a little racy behind the scenes as Gerard was secretly grabbing Jen's butt. After this short trip abroad, Jennifer will return to work with Adam Sandler on Just Go With It, which is popular already — more than 3,000 people showed up for an open casting call in Hawaii.

Families swapped out the Tweedles for some fire-breathing friends over the weekend, making How to Train Your Dragon the No. 1 pick at the box office. The animated film took in $43.3 million which was easily enough to unseat last week's champ Alice in Wonderland, which dropped nearly 50 percent for $17.3 million.
Another newcomer, the raunch-filled (but lovable!) Hot Tub Time Machine took third place with $13.6 million, while Jennifer Aniston earned $12.4 million for The Bounty Hunter. Diary of a Wimpy Kid rounded out the top five with $10 million.

Jennifer Aniston was pretty in a pink Christian Lacroix gown this evening at the Paris premiere of The Bounty Hunter with Gerard Butler. She was just in Europe two weeks ago for a screening in London, but Jen and Gerard had since returned to the US for a final promotional push before the film opened here on the 19th. Jen traveled to in France on Thursday in order to have time to relax a little and explore the city after her week in LA working on Just Go With It alongside Adam Sandler.
Gerard Butler also arrived in town early, and he joined Jen last night for dinner with friends on a boat that took a scenic tour along the Seine. Despite their obvious chemistry as friends, Gerard and Jen's film had a surprisingly weak opening in the States. It didn't fare any better this weekend with a fourth place finish, but Gerard's How to Train Your Dragon actually took the top spot. He and Jen are going to be sticking together in the coming days for more press dates, including upcoming stops in Madrid and Berlin.

Jennifer Aniston was at work in LA on the set of Just Go With It this morning and Friday with Adam Sandler while The Bounty Hunter faced opening weekend. Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler traveled the world to support the film, but even their best efforts couldn't earn the top spot. You seemed torn on buying tickets, and the movie took in only $21 million earning a third place finish. Jennifer's Love Happens faced an even worse total, though she did have major hits with He's Just Not That Into You and Marley and Me. Tell us — are you surprised her project had a rough opening weekend?
Alice in Wonderland continues to cast its spell on the box office. The Tim Burton spectacle earned $34.5 million, besting the weekend's newcomers. Of those, children's flick Diary of a Wimpy Kid pulled off a narrow upset over the heavily promoted Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler starrer The Bounty Hunter. Kid took the second place spot with $21.8 million, while the latter garnered $21 million for third.
Despite a disappointing number of only $6.1 million, the bloody Jude Law thriller Repo Men squeezed its way into No. 4. Returning rom-com She's Out of My League finished out the top five with $6 million.
Kristen Stewart fans may be a bit disappointed over the figures for The Runaways. The film took in $803K from its small release of 244 theaters for a per theater average of $3,291 — not terrible, but not good either. It's still slated to go nationwide come April, so here's hoping it manages to pick up some steam.
