Your weekend box office numbers:

1. Shutter Island - $22.2 million. It's making enough money that, in a few years, it may be the #1 answer when Family Feud asks for a Scorsese film.

2. Cop Out - $18.6 million, not enough to take first place but enough to surely turn a profit when, next week, Kevin Smith adds new scenes of Tracy Morgan delivering Shutter Island lines in an interrogation room.

3. The Crazies - Only managed to gross $16.5 million, as most audiences just assumed "The Crazies" must be a wacky family of mixed-weight Eddie Murphys.

4. Avatar - $14 million. That's 706. MILLION! ...DOLLARS! ...TOTAL! ...WITHIN THE UNITED STATES!

5. Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief - $9.8 million. When it comes to child gods, audiences still prefer Little Hercules.
