Box Office Breakdown: He’s Just Not That Into You Debuts on Top

He's Just Not That Into You

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have returned home with more losses this weekend, but Jennifer Aniston was a big winner.

For the third time in a row, the Friends star found herself in a familiar position. Although it is technically an ensemble piece, became the 39-year-old’s latest chart topper. (The Break-Up and Marley & Me also debuted at #1.) The adaptation’s $28 million gross helped push another romantic comedy offering, New in Town, completely out of the Top Ten. (The Renee Zellweger film had only been there for one week.)

Meanwhile, , a Heroes-esque sci-fi thriller, earned $10.1 million and a 6th place finish.
