"Toy Story 3" beat the competition this weekend again, rising above Sandler's comedy "Grown Ups" and the Cruise-Diaz action romance "Knight and Day."

In 10 days, "Toy Story 3" has made $226.6 million. It crossed the $200 million mark in eight days. "Finding Nemo," Pixar's highest grossing animated film, took 20 days. Will "Toy Story 3" take the top spot out of all the Pixar films? Well, it stills needs around $113 million for that honor.

The competition between funny-man Sandler and action-star Cruise proved that savage reviews and goofball jokes prove better for box office success. That and maybe more parents wanted to bring their kids along to a family comedy.

Overall, this was a pretty slow weekend.Dropping below the Top 4 you see some pretty small numbers compared those top earnings. "Jonah Hex" is in the dead zone with $15 million in total after its $60 million budget. That's a pretty big slap in the face to anyone who worked on that project.

Next week you're either in line for "Eclipse," staying at home to hide from the tweens and Twilight Moms, or planning on throwing garlic and silver to those previous mentioned groups while they wait in movie theater lines. Your choice!
