Step aside Coen Brothers, there’s a new western film in town, and it stars a green cockeyed lizard in some authentic cowboy attire, Rango. The Johnny Depp animated featured followed the success of last weekend’s top choice Gnomeo and Juliet lassoing in a hefty $38 million during its opening weekend. Another successful newcomer was Matt Damon and Emily Blunt‘s The Adjustment Bureau. The Universal picture was No. 2 making over $20 million.

Though our box office predictions were rather popular, we didn’t get it all right, we had predicted that Beastly would be down in the bottom half of the top 10, but the romance-fantasy film surprised us and came in at No. 3 grossing $10 million.

Despite the end of award’s season, The King’s Speech is still swimming in the top 10. The film shot up the box office ladder again this past weekend. Maybe we ought to start some bets on when the Oscar winning picture will leave the top 10, eh?
