No surprise that The Amazing Spider Man was No. 1 this weekend and that Seth MacFarlane's rude comedy Ted held up pretty strong for the second place.

I'd say that the big story this weekend is how well Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection did at the box office, with its predominantly Caucasian cast - a rarity for a Madea movie.

Despite the fact that it got disappointing reviews, calling it the weakest Pixar entry since Cars (and maybe even weaker than that), Brave (a film I admit I couldn't even feign an interest in watching, like curling) was, no surprise, the No. 1 film this weekend, and is expected to do extremely well at the box office like all other Pixar films.

Weekend B.O. June 15-17 ('Madagascar' Stays On Top)

This weekend's new entries - Rock of Ages, and the Adam Sandler comedy, That's My Boy - both performed way below exceptations, which allowed Madagascar 3 and Prometheus (despite the film's big B.O. drop), to both stay in the No. 1 and 2 positions this weekend.

Of course the final figures won't come out until Sunday afternoon as usual, but if things hold up as expected Prometheus is going to take a massive hit at the box office this weekend dropping over 70%

Call it the "Think Like A Man $100 million" watch.

It was expected that a family friendly animated film would beat out an R rated sci-fi movie. But for a minute, it looked like Prometheus was going to edge out Madagascar 3 this weekend; it's even more surprising, considering that Madagascar is playing in over 1000 screens more than the Ridley Scott film.

Weekend B.O. June 1-3 (The Mystery That Is Kristen Stewart)

Kristen Stewart is, for me, another one of those "just-how-exactly-did-she-become-a-movie-star?" movie stars. I mean really?  Her screen presence is nil; she has only one expression on her face (either on or off the screen) - that of someone who just got a tooth pulled; and her whole "I'm so uncomfortable this whole Hollywood thing. I wish I was somewhere else" B.S. bit gets on my last nerve.

Just shows you how much I know, which any regular reader of S & A can tell you isn't much. I figured that Men In Black III was going to underperform in its opening weekend release, because I didn't think there was any interest from anyone in a new MIB movie.
