LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Warner Brothers struck 24 carat gold with "Fool's Gold," which debuted at No. 1 in U.S. theaters this weekend, Box Office Mojo reported.

The romantic comedy starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughney pulled in an estimated $22.01 million in its first weekend. It was followed at No. 2 by another new movie, "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins," a comedy featuring the brash Martin Lawrence and the regal James Earl Jones that recorded $17.13 million in estimated ticket sales.

Last week's top movie, "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour," came in at No. 3 with $10.51 million. "The Eye" was fourth with $6.64 million, while "Juno" continued to show its stamina by climbing back to No. 5 from sixth in its 10th week.

Rounding out the Top 10 were "27 Dresses," $5.7 million; "The Bucket List," $5.34 million; "Rambo," $4.11 million; "Meet the Spartans," $4.08 million; and "There Will Be Blood," $4.07 million.

Falling out of the upper echelon of films were "Untraceable" and "Cloverfield."
