Out of all of the superhero/comic-book movies that have come out this summer, Green Lantern‘s debut has been the weakest. All three films Thor (opened to $66 million), X-Men: First Class (opened to $56 million) and now, Green Lantern placed at No. 1 during their opening weekend, but not each one seems to be making less than the last. Even with the extra boost in 3D ticket sales, Green Lantern wasn’t able to top its predecessors. Last weekend’s big attraction Super 8 slipped to second place, grossing $21.2 million. And Mr. Popper’s Penguins, the new Jim Carrey family comedy, came in at No. 3 with $18.2 million. Find out more below…

Being summer and all, it’s no surprise that our top ten list is packed with huge studio movies. Most of the films seen here have gigantic budgets, and even though they aren’t No. 1 (anymore), they are still bringing in big piles of money. The Hangover Part II, for example, has a total gross of over $232.6 million, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides passed the $220 million mark this weekend. The Johnny Depp movie is closer and closer to surpassing its own huge budget of $250 million.
