'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' Outpaces 'Don Jon' and 'Baggage Claim'; 'Prisoners' Plummets

Sony's "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" dominated Friday's grosses, an easy #1 for opening day, grossing $9.3 million. This places it in between the $8.1 million first day of the initial "Meatballs" and the $11.0 million of "Hotel Transylvania" (also Sony) on the same Friday a year ago. With weekend matinees ahead and little competition for kids' audiences, this animated feature will likely gross more than the #2-4 films combined.

'Don Jon': Catholics Respond to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Raunchy Redemptive Comedy (VIDEO)

“Don Jon,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s raunchy/redemption comedy -- and the actor’s debut as a feature director – has a lot going for it, including Gordon-Levitt’s performance, and that of Tony Danza, and the fact that the film may finally have provided Scarlett Johansson the role she was born to play. It’s intentionally vulgar. It may not have been intentionally sacrilegious.
