The exorcism thriller beats 'No Strings Attached' to claim the crown despite the fact that it is slammed by critics.

It's still another slow week at North American Box Office and "The Rite" comes out as the winner. The Anthony Hopkins-starring exorcism thriller, which is inspired by 1970s classic "The Exorcist", possesses the top spot with an estimated $15 million despite poor reviews by critics.

Last week's champion "No Strings Attached" is knocked down to number two with an additional $13.7 million. The R-rated drama that pairs Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher up has earned a total of $39.7 million from its first 10 days.

Another major debut this week is "The Mechanic" which lands on number three with an estimated $11.5 million. "The Green Hornet" follows on number four with $11.5 million. Rounding up the top five, meanwhile, is "The King's Speech" which rakes in an approximately $11.1 million, or increases about 41.3% from last week's cume.
