Rounding out the top ten are Rambo, Meet the Spartans and There Will Be Blood. In its third week in the top ten, Sylvester Stallone's return to the super-violent Rambo franchise dropped another 42% as it earned $4.1 million. With a grand total of $36.5 million, it sits alongside Rocky Balboa as proof that Stallone can be relevant in the 21st century. Meet the Spartans, which has been Rambo's tag-team partner through the duration of their release, took in $4.075 million and saw a drop of 44%. After getting off to a fast start with an $18.5 million opening weekend, the spoof film has fallen fast and hard. It is likely spending its last weekend in the top ten and has a cumulative total of $33.9 million. Finally, our tenth place finisher is Academy Award nominee There Will Be Blood. The film continues to ride its multiple nominations for a few bucks, and it earned $4.073 million, down about 12% from its last frame. Given that many consider the film inaccessible to mainstream audiences, a running total of $26.8 million is quite impressive.

Box office for the top ten earned an estimated $91.4 million. This total represents a virtual tie with 2007's $91.8 million. It is, however, a 10% decline from last weekend's Hannah-inflated $101.9 million. Next week will see a number of solid releases vying for audience attention, including the action flick Jumper, the female-targeted Definitely, Maybe, the kids' book adaptation The Spiderwick Chronicles and unnecessary sequel and mySpace phenomenon Step Up 2 the Streets.
