"Zombieland" went on vacation this past weekend. Yeah, "Couple Retreat" beat it, but neither film will wind up staying high in the Top Ten for long since so many movies are coming out this weekend.

That is also the end of the two-week run of the "Toy Story" 3-D Double Feature, so that will be eliminated off the list as well.

As for "Paranormal Activity," it still isn't in many theaters yet it is banking. It does have a wide national release until this weekend but people are going to those sold-out theaters to catch it before then.

The last couple of films on the list won't be there next time with the amount of new films coming out. Which one will win the weekend though?
