Capitalism: A Love Story, Moore's latest him-versus-them adventure, was a bottom-line success in very limited release, grossing more money at each of its theaters than any film this weekend. Or this year.

Overall, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs remained No. 1, with an estimated $24.6 million, thanks to remarkable staying power—and the unremarkable debuts of Surrogates ($15 million) and Fame ($10 million).
