Another new offering, the thriller "The Happening," starring Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel, broke out at No. 3 with $30.5 million in estimated gate receipts.

"You Don't Mess with the Zohan" was fourth at $16.4 million, while "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was fifth at $13.55 million.

Rounding out the Top 10 were "Sex and the City," $10.19 million; "Iron Man," $5.13 million; "The Strangers," $4.1 million; "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," $3 million; and "What Happens in Vegas," $1.7 million.
