In a surprise upset Blake Lively’s new film bests boyfriend Penn Badgley’s ‘Easy A,’ which had been expected to take the weekend!

It was a Gossip Girl battle at the box office this weekend as offscreen couple Blake Lively and Penn Badgley both had supporting roles in the weekend’s two biggest filmsThe Town and Easy A. In the end, The Town pulled off a surprise win with $23.6 million due to a cast that included Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall, Jeremy Renner, and actor and director Ben Affleck. Easy A meanwhile, starring the hysterical, adorable and extremely talented Emma Stone pulled in $18.3 million according to our sister site Deadline Hollywood.

Rounding out the top 5 were the new horror film Devil with $12.7 million, last week’s winner Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D with $10 million, and new toon Alpha & Omega with $9 million.

Next week looks to be very crowded at the box office with the highly anticipated Wall Street 2 : Money Never Sleeps opening as well as Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and the new Kristen Bell and Betty White comedy You Again.
