The family film Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs had no problem fending off challengers to maintain its status as the No. 1 movie in America. Cloudy added another $24.6 million to the coffers, for a 10-day total of $60 million.
Second place went to Surrogates, a sci-fi thriller starring Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell. This film, which has received more positive than negative reviews, earned $15 million during its debut weekend. Fame, a remake of the ’80s cult classic, earned a disappointing $10 million, while Pandorum, another sci-fi entry starring Denns Quaid, earned just $4.41 million.
