Green Lantern Shines at the Box Office

by at . Comments

Green Lantern was trashed by movie critics around the country. It also featured Blake Lively with her clothes on for a change.

Despite these two drawbacks, the superhero film was number-one at the box office, beating out a pair of sequels, Jim Carrey's latest big screen effort and J.J. Abrams' alien adventure.

The weekend's top five highest grossing films were:

  1. Green Lantern: $52.7 million
  2. Super 8: $21.3 million
  3. Mr. Popper’s Penguins: $18.2 million
  4. X-Men: First Class: $11.5 million
  5. The Hangover Part II: $9.6 million
