Horrible Bosses, debuting this weekend, was in second with $28.1 million.
Zookeper, also new to theaters, came in third with $21 million.
Disney's Cars 2 at $15.2 million and Bad Teacher at $9 million rounded out the top five.
The rest of the top 10 includes Larry Crowne, Super 8, Monte Carlo, Green Lantern, and Mr. Bopper's Penguins.
