After premiering last Friday, Netflix original action thriller Interceptor ruled the Top 10 Movies in the U.S. over the weekend - which Chris Hemsworth congratulated his wife, star Elsa Pataky, for on Instagram - and once again claims the Number One spot above 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man with Jean-Claude Van Damme’s We Die Young surpassing Anchorman: The Legend of Rob Burgundy, which now sits above Disappearance at Clifton Hill. Making a pretty massive leap from yesterday into sixth place is another comedy favorite, 1994’s Dumb and Dumber, right above the fourth installment of Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible movies (subtitled Ghost Protocol) in its first appearance on the list this week. Also new on the list is Best Picture Oscar winner The Hurt Locker, sitting right between Netflix original hits Senior Year and A Perfect Pairing.
