Move out, folks, the "Invincible" has come to beat all standing on its way for sure. Really lives up to its title, the Disney's uplifting sports feature has gloriously taken its victory lap on the weekend box-office, scoring $17 million to claim its position on the top spot of the list and so, holding back "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" to stay right on its last-week position.

Though unable to accelerate its pace this time, "Ricky Bobby" turns out to still do well in its fourth week on the chart as it managed to add another $8 million to its pocket, altogether making an income of $127.8 million for Columbia Pictures. Lining up behind is the engaging road-trip comedy of "Little Miss Sunshine" which satisfyingly garnered $7.5 million to then climb four steps to number three this week.

Other wide-release newcomer, "Beerfest", comes next on the fourth rank after averaging $2,193 at 2,964 locations to collect $6.5 million followed by Universal's "Accepted" with also $6.5 million filled to its fifth-place feedbag.

Last-week top holder, "Snakes on a Plane", sadly has to go way down to number six after only working its way to draw modest income of $6.4 million. The same thing also happened to Oliver Stone's "World Trade Center" for it heavily fell four notches to the seventh position following its capability to earn a mere $6.3 million during its weekend run.

Placed in order, the rest positions up to number ten are filled by "Step Up" with $6.1 million, "Idlewild" with $5.9 million, and "Barnyard" with $5.4 million. With this result, the overall box office is thereby down more than eight percent from last weekend.
