Based on last weekend’s success, it was obvious that Thor would, once again, be No. 1 at the box office. This weekend saw the release of two polar opposite films — Bridesmaids and Priest. Well known-funny man Judd Apatow was a part of the Bridesmaids’ crew, which stars a handful of the most popular comedic women, like its leading lady Kristen Wiig. The Universal comedy came in after Thor, grossing more than we predicted. The sci-fic action film Priest didn’t do as well as Bridesmaids – coming in at No. 4 (grossing $14.5 million). Fast Five managed to stay above Priest, and is still bringing in solid money, week after week.  Check out the actual numbers below…

Bridesmaids wasn’t much of a competition for Thor, maybe The Hangover II would’ve been but that’s not for another couple of weeks. However, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides might give Thor a run for its money. Do you think Thor will stay on top this coming weekend, or will Pirates steal the No. 1 spot? The battle of the big blockbuster movies continues.
