Box Office: District 9 Invades at No. 1


Movie audiences favored the aliens and the action this past weekend as the Peter Jackson-produced extra-terrestrial film District 9 took the top spot with an estimated $37 million. In second place with $22.5 million was last weekend's big earner, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The Rachel McAdams-Eric Bana romance The Time Traveler's Wife opened at No. 3 with $19.2 million, which is apparently "one of the best showings ever for a romantic drama in any part of the year." Julie and Julia and G-Force took the fourth and fifth spots respectively.

Elsewhere at the box office, Jeremy Piven's comedy The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard took in an estimated $5.3 million its opening weekend, putting it at No. 6, while the teen comedy Bandslam didn't quite make the top 10, grossing an estimated $2.3 million.
