Box Office: 21 Wins Again as Leatherheads Fumbles

For the second weekend in a row, Jim Sturgess and gang were No. 1 at the box office — though the overall March slump continued. 21 was down a bit from the weekend before but held on to the top spot with a weekend take of $15 million.

As for the No. 2 spot, Variety is calling it a "virtual tie" between George Clooney's Leatherheads (with an estimated $13.5 million) and the Jodie Foster-Abigail Breslin family flick Nim's Island, which brought in $13.3 million.

Horton Hears a Who came in fourth place followed by the big horror film opening of the weekend, The Ruins, which took in $7.8 million. The Rolling Stones documentary by Martin Scorsese, Shine a Light, opened in limited release and brought in $1.5 million.

What did you see at the theaters this weekend? Did you give George and Renee a chance despite so-so reviews?

This is completely off topic, but never thought they'd put a super cheap Ikea lamp in a sexy photoshoot!

I loved Leatherheads! Nothing else out right now interests me until Forgetting Sarah Marshall is released on the 18th.

I was really excited to see Leatherheads 1. because all the people starring in it are amazing and 2. I love football. Last night I went to see it and it was so slow. I was really bummed out.

We went to the drive-in and saw Leatherheads this weekend. There were funny and interesting parts, but overall it was just so-so. 21 hasn't really piqued my interest yet.
