Box Office Breakdown: Portman Scores with Kutcher and Kunis

No Strings Attached

Pair with a star from That 70’s Show and what do you get? A Top Ten film.

No Strings Attached – last weekend’s only new wide release – topped the box office with a $19.6 million bow. The film, which features Portman and Ashton Kutcher, gave Natalie – someone who has avoided romantic comedies -- her best debut since 2006’s V for Vendetta.

As for Black Swan, Portman’s film with 70’s Show actress – that film slipped one notch down to sixth place over the weekend. You can expect a possible boost for the thriller after Oscar nominations are announced Tuesday morning.

Box Office Breakdown: No Dilemma for The Green Hornet

Green Hornet

, starring Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, brought in a lot green for Sony this weekend. Although the film came nowhere near its $110 million budget, Hornet did earn enough ($33.5 million) to make it the second-best grosser ever during the MLK Jr. holiday frame. (Cloverfield earned $40.1 million over its first three days in 2008.)

Despite the combined comedic forces of Vince Vaughn and Kevin James, turned out to be more of a non-issue. The Universal entry -- which cost $70 million to produce -- failed to even crack the $20 million mark. That's the worst debut for Vaughn since 2007's Fred Claus and the worst open for James ever (if you don't count the films he only voiced).

Box Office Breakdown: Weak Showing for Country Strong

Country Strong

Gwyneth Paltrow's appearances on Glee, the Country Music Awards and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon couldn't help her film's performance at the box office.

Country Strong's first week in wide release strummed up less than $10 million over the past three days. The good news? The film only cost approximately $12 million to produce. In comparison, True Grit -- another film in its third week -- finally rode past Little Fockers for a first-place finish.

Meanwhile, Season of the Witch, the only other new entry in the Top Ten, fired up $10.6 million. That was enough to give the Nicolas Cage feature a third place debut.

Box Office Breakdown: The Town Takes the Crown

The Town

, Ben Affleck’s second directorial feature, surprised analysts this weekend with a win at the box office. The film, which far surpassed Gone Baby Gone’s $5.5 million debut in 2007, earned $23.8 million—a September-best for Warner Bros. The drama, co-starring Jon Hamm and Jeremy Renner, also gave actor Affleck his first #1 film—outside of He’s Just Not that Into You—since Daredevil.

Although many had topping the charts, the film came in a very respectable second place. The Emma Stone-starrer – which only cost $8 million to produce – generated good reviews and a $17.7 million take.

The weekend’s other two new wide releases also landed in the Top 5. The PG-13 horror film raised $12.3 million while Alpha and Omega, a more family-friendly entry, rang up $9.1 million in ticket sales.
