Green Lantern Ryan Reynolds' superhero movie Green Lantern has shot to the top of the box office charts with an opening weekend $52.7 million take.

The film was an easy winner among new releases, with Jim Carrey's family comedy "Mr. Popper's Penguins" coming in third with $18.2 million.

The two debuts sandwiched last week's chart topper, "Super 8," which slipped to two on the new box office countdown.

The new top five is rounded out by prequel "X-Men: First Class" and sequel "The Hangover Part II."
