Listen up- movie studio execs- families can’t afford babysitters these days & that’s why ‘Toy Story 3′ & ‘Grown Ups’ are big winners this weekend!

Here we are again. Another weekend at the summer box office and another victory for a children’s film as Toy Story 3 remained atop the leader board, bringing in a very healthy $58.9 million according to our sister site Deadline Hollywood. Coming in second with $41 million was the Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock flick Grown Ups, a film where someone pees in a pool and the water turns blue we all learned from the ads shown everywhere for the past few weeks. And they say they don’t make intelligent films anymore!

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz‘s Knight and Day ended up not being the box office bomb many thought it might be with a low, but over expectations, $20.5 million. Now that it’s released however we will miss Tom’s senseless viral videos, one-on-one time with the dudes from Twilight, and lighting up the stage with Puerto Rican dancers.

Rounding out the top 5 were 80s remakes The Karate Kid with $15.4 million and A-Team with $6.1 million.

It will be interesting to see how these films fare next weekend at the box office. Are there any new releases?

long before the couch, the ‘glib’, the brooke shields, the scientology tape leak, cruise was losing his box office appeal; as his films in general were costing more, but bringing in less at the box office. cruise has had an amazing career. he was a top ten box office draw for 20 years! out of those 20 years he was number one 7 times which is more than any other star ever. for some reason the media (again in general) has decided that now is the time for his comeback and that This is the film to propel that comeback, but the public is in rejection of that notion. the media seems bent on shoving cruise down everyone’s throat and the public (in general) is merely regurgitating hollywood’s hard sell. cruise will continue to be a star. he will continue to have a career, but the truth is he just isn’t the star he once was. 20 years with 7 at number one that is an incredible run. just how big is the hole in cruise’s ego that he must continue to win or at least attempt to win the attention of the public? how much reaffirmation and ego stroking does he need? when will hollywood realize that their plastic, manufactured star/golden boy has run his course?
