You don’t have to be a computer genius to know that The Social Network was going to be the clear winner this weekend. The only real question was, by how much? With an over ten million dollar lead, it’s a pretty solid win.

Legends never die it seems, as it holds second place for the second weekend in a row. Sure, it may not sound like much, but winning out over two new releases is pretty impressive for a bunch of owls.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps slipped this weekend. It found its way to third place in its second weekend. Its nothing to lose sleep over, but nothing to be too proud about either.

Seems like the raves about the Town are either starting to wind down or they’re falling on deaf ears. Whatever the reason, its fourth place isn’t terrible news considering when you look at its theater numbers and its weekend gross compared to some of the bigger budget flicks.

Finally, Easy A isn’t having too easy a go of it. It’s fallen to fifth place, but with all of the new movies coming out, it’s hard to keep up. This may be its last weekend on the top five, but it still had a decent run.
