June 20th, 2011 8:46am EDT
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."
