Argo Reaches #1 at the Box Office

With a $100 million budget, "Cloud Atlas" was banking on box office success. If this weekend is any indication, it's going to be a slow process making that $100 million back. The movie, which stars Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, made $9.4 million this weekend across 2,008 theaters, bringing it to the number three spot.

It was beat by "Argo," which rose to number one for the first time since its release three weeks ago. The movie brought in $12.4 million for the weekend, for a total of $60.8 million since debut.

Adding insult to injury, the sci-fi adaptation was also beat by "Hotel Transylvania," which made $9.5 million in its fifth week. The movie has now earned $130.4 million which is record-breaking for Sony for animation movies.

Slow and steady wins the race.
