(Newser) Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs dominated the box office for the second straight weekend, racking up $24.6 million in ticket sales and running 10-day total to $60 million. That represents just a 19% fall-off from its opening weekend performance, a notably strong showing in a generally weak autumn market, the Hollywood Reporter notes. Surrogates, a sci-fi flick starring Bruce Willis and a bad wig, lagged expectations in totaling $15 million.

The top 5:

  1. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, $24.6
  2. Surrogates, $15 million
  3. Fame, $10 million
  4. The Informant!, $6.9 million
  5. I Can Do Bad All By Myself, $4.9 million
