The family flick easily beat other new films over the weekend -- including the Justin Timberlake sci-fi film In Time, which earned a disappointing $12 million, landing in the number 3 spot. Johnny Depp's The Rum Diary flopped with just $5 million and a number 5 ranking its first weekend out

Last week's huge number one hit, Paranormal Activity 3, earned another $18.5 million, placing it second and bringing its overall earnings so far to $81.3 million; at number four this weekend, Footloose grabbed an additional $5.4 million.
