Super 8's big debut bumps X-Men: First Class into second place, which took an additional $25 million in its second week on release, boosting its domestic total to $98.9 million.

The Hangover Part II came in third place, while Kung Fu Panda 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides round out the new top five.
