With a very small gap, the romantic comedy starring Jennifer Aniston claims the champion title as Justin Bieber's concert documentary lands on number two.
The latest North American Box Office sees a showdown between "Just Go with It" and "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never". As predicted before, the two movies were battling their way to the top spot, but it is the Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler-starring film which finally snatches the crown.
The romantic comedy debuts with $30.5 million, which is less than a million more than the number grossed by Justin Bieber's 3-D movie. The concert documentary rakes in $29.5 million on its first weekend.
"Just Go with It", which is panned by critics and deemed "too predictable", is surprisingly appealing to both women and men as it draws a crowd that is 42 percent male. "Never Say Never" which gets strong reviews, in the meantime, has audience consisting of 84 percent female and 67 percent under 25.
Other major debuts this week are "Gnomeo and Juliet" and "The Eagle". The Disney movie lands on number three and surpasses people's expectation with $25.4 million, in addition to scoring the biggest February opening ever for an animated film. The epic movie featuring Channing Tatum is not that charming, landing on number four with $8.7 million.
Last week's champion "The Roommate" jumps down to number five with an additional $8.1 million.
