The Green Hornet Wins Number One at the Box Office in First Weekend of Release

Box Office: The Green Hornet Buzzes to the Top

The January box office slump persisted over the Martin Luther King weekend, with the low numbers making it the least attended MLK weekend since the mid '90s. Those who did make it to the theater were looking for some action, because Seth Rogen's foray into superhero territory, The Green Hornet, came in first with $34 million.

The masked Rogen beat out the other new release, Vince Vaughn's comedy The Dilemma, which pulled in $17.4 million to get it into second place. In the number three was last week's winner, True Grit, which earned $11.2. Another success of the week was The King's Speech — between the wide release and awards buzz, it catapulted from the ninth to the fourth spot with $9 million, for the first time in the box office top five! And in the fifth spot was fellow award season darling Black Swan, which earned $8.1 million.
