Super 8 was the winner of the box office this weekend but it was far from a blockbuster. The movie made $37 million, which is better than some recent similar movies like District 9, Battle: Los Angeles and The Day the Earth Stood Still but was less than it’s cousin Cloverfield (which made $40 million) and far less than The Karate Kid’s opening last year at this time. Paramount is saying that Super 8 will probably have a long tail so we’ll have to see how much it drops off this coming weekend. Speaking of drop offs, X-Men: First Class had a 54% drop off from last weekend with $25 million. It’s just shy of $100 million. Hangover, Kung Fu Panda and Pirates rounded out the top 5. The other new release from last weekend, Judy Moody, was a disaster, opening with just under $7 million, putting it in seventh place.
