(Newser) – Veteran stars Tom Cruise and Adam Sandler aren't breaking any box office records this weekend, Huffington Post reports. Cruise's much-hyped Rock of Ages banked just $15 million, behind Madagascar 3's $35.5 million and Prometheus' $20.2 million. Snow White and the Huntsman took fourth with $13.8 million, followed by Sandler's R-rated comedy That's My Boy, which made a paltry $13 million—Sandler's most anemic debut with the Happy Madison production company since Little Nicky 12 years ago.
