Weekend Box Office - Toys Rock The Box For A Second Week image
This weekend two major Hollywood powerhouses went head to head to find out who could draw the bigger crowd. Would it be Adam Sandler and his Grown-ups gang or Tom Cruise's latest action vehicle Knight and Day be the audience charming winner?

Neither.

Both big boys lost out to a bunch of toys.

Pixar's Toy Story 3 held on to first place for a second week with a solid $59 million. That brings the movie's domestic total to over $225 million and putting the movie on track to become the studio's biggest earner. Finding Nemo currently holds that record with $339 million.

Sandler's Grown-ups, which blew most of its moderately funny moments in the trailers, and which has bored critics to tears, took in $41 million for second place. Knight and Day didn't fare even half as well. With a $20 million opening it marks one of Cruise's lowest debuts in the last fifteen years.
