Weekend Box Office: One Alien Movie Kills, Another Flops

Comstock Images/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- In the battle at the box office, one film demolished the competition. Battle: Los Angeles beat the other movies and expectations, pulling in an estimated $36 million, $9 million more than some predicted. The alien invasion movie didn't get great reviews from critics, but is averaging a B rating from moviegoers, according to CinemaScore.

The animated Johnny Depp lizard western Rango held strong in its second week, coming in second, followed by Red Riding Hood and The Adjustment Bureau.

It was a disappointing opening for Mars Needs Moms. It's fifth place, estimated $7 million was $10 million less than some had predicted.

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.
