Box Office Breakdown: Chance of Meatballs is Winning Recipe

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

While it may not have had a Damon, an Aniston or a Fox, had something no other film did this weekend: a win. The animated adaptation raked in $30.3 million over the weekend easily pushing it to the top of the charts. The PG-rated entry towered over the box office and nearly tripled its nearest competitor (The Informant). The 3-D film also gave Sony Pictures Animation its biggest debut to date.

Elsewhere, two Hollywood beauties were struggling to make a respectable showing. Despite (or because of) a number of notable quotes, Megan Fox failed to muster any interest in her first starring vehicle. Jennifer’s Body, a horror film penned by Diablo Cody, raised a whopping $6.9 million for a fifth-place finish. (I’m not even sure that would be enough to fund one day of a Transformers production.) Megan Fox might not be a fan of Michael Bay, but she better be grateful she met him.

Sandra Bullock Stalks Men

Sandra Bullock as Mary HorowitzSandra Bullock says that stalking men is the best way to get a date.

The Hollywood star, whose character Mary Horowitz pursues her crush in new movie All About Steve, believes that you need to secretly follow potential suitors to find out what they like.

“How else do you get dates? I learned that you have to stalk and then make it look very innocent. Then once you get them you sort of shred receipts and you do things that sort of cover the paper trail of your stalking. I think it’s a necessary evil to sort of lure in your prey,” she jokes.

In All About Steve, Mary becomes obsessed with a man, played by Bradley Cooper, after going out on a blind date with him. Sandra also revealed she is terrible at crosswords, unlike her film character who constructs word games for a living, but loves seeing her name appear in puzzles.

“I can barely spell. I so admire people who just whiz through them. My name has been in several crosswords, so I guess that’s the only thing that really connects me. I always get the clue when I’m seven across or whatever. I get very excited, ‘I got that one. It’s me,’” she tells Parade Magazine.
