Epic saga "300" fiercely beats "Wild Hogs" to snatch the top position on the chart in its debut.

The epic genre has truly made such a grand return through "300."

Coming out as the only newcomer, the graphic retelling of Frank Miller's graphic novel about the ancient Battle of Thermopylae amazingly scoops up a fantastic number of $70.8 million to take over the No.1 position from Disney's "Wild Hogs" on the weekend box office ended Sunday, March 11.

Though has to go down one notch this time, the star-studded road movie delightfully continues to score well in its second spin on the chart as it manages to add another $27.6 million into its feedbag, over four times greater than the $6.7 million the second runner-up "Bridge to Terabithia" has collected.

Columbia Pictures' superhero flick "Ghost Rider" and David Fincher-directed thriller "Zodiac" trail close behind to fill in the next two positions after earning respective income of $6.67 million and $6.64 million followed by larger-than-life comedy "Norbit", which is able to pull a handful of $4.2 million to raise its total to $88.3 million so far.

Lining up in order to construct the top ten of the list are New Line Cinema's psychological thriller "The Number 23" with $4 million, Warner Bros.' romantic comedy "Music and Lyrics" with $3.7 million, Universal Pictures' "Breach" with $2.5 million, and Michael Apted's historical drama "Amazing Grace" with $2.4 million.
