'Super 8' has Super Opening, Tops Box Office

Comstock Images/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Super 8 proved to indeed be super over the weekend, as it captured the top spot at the box office.

The film, which was directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, opened to an estimated gross of $37 million, knocking X-Men: First Class into second spot, with the latter raking in $25 million in its second week.

The Hangover Part II ($18.5 million), Kung Fu Panda 2 ($16.6 million) and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides ($10.8 million) round out the weekend's top five at the box office, in that order.
