(Newser) Angels & Demons ascended to the box office heavens this weekend with a $48 million debut, Entertainment Weekly reports. That’s well behind The Da Vince Code’s $77.1 million opening in 2006, due in part to Star Trek’s strong second-weekend haul of $43 million. Wolverine came in third with $14.8 million, while sleeper hits Ghosts of Girlfriends Past ($6.9 million) and Obsessed ($4.6 million) rounded out the top five.
