Entries in Beastly (2)


Weekend Box Office Good to the Lizards

Comstock Images/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Rango, about a confused chameleon voiced by Johnny Depp, blew away the competition at this weekend's box office, earning a better than expected estimated $38 million – more than enough for an easy win over another debut, the Matt Damon/Emily Blunt sci-fi thriller The Adjustment Bureau.

Rounding out the top five were a surprise third place showing for the romance Beastly, then last week's number one – the comedy, Hall Pass – and Gnomeo & Juliet.
