Who Topped the Box Office this Weekend?
So who do you think topped the Box Office this weekend? Give you a hint… Natalie Portman was in this film! No Strings Attached” is putting a Natalie Portman film at the top of box office for the first time in five years. The romantic comedy — which features Portman opposite Ashton Kutcher — earned about 20-point-three-million dollars in its North American debut over the weekend. In the film, Portman and Kutcher play characters who enter into a “friends with benefits” relationship that gets complicated. “The Green Hornet” starring Seth Rogen, meanwhile, slipped to second with 18-point-one million in ticket sales. In third, was the Vince Vaughn-Kevin James comedy “The Dilemma,” which pulled in an additional nine-point-seven-million dollars.
