Washington (ANI): Actress Angelina Jolie's latest animated thriller Beowulf has topped the weekend Box Office with an earning of 28.1 million dollars. However, the results are not proving to be a happy one, for the total earning show that it has been the weakest third weekend in November in more than a decade.
"Slow has been the word for both the fall and the holiday season. The movies just aren't there….If business was humming along as usual, Beowulf would not have opened No. 1," E!Online quoted Box Office Mojo's Brandon Gray, as saying.
In second place on the list complied by Exhibitor Relations was the Bee Movie with an earning of 14.3 million dollars, followed by American Gangster. The Denzel Washington-Russell Crowe starrer took in 13.2 million dollars over the weekend. The top five was rounded off by the Vince Vaughn starrer Fred Claus which earned 12 million dollars, and Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium starring Natalie Portman, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Bateman and Zach Mills, which raked in 10 million dollars, coming in fourth and fifth place respectively.
