Green Lantern wills the box office top spot

Green Lantern wills the box office top spot

One weekend in, and the Emerald Knight has already soared to the top of the box office. At just under $53 million dollars, the Green Lantern topped the weekend list, dethroning last week’s champ, Super 8, new comer Mr. Popper’s Penguins, and fellow super hero flick, X-Men: First Class. GL is the third DC Comics hero to hit the big screen in the past few years, following in the footsteps of Batman and Superman, and hoping to carve out a nice franchise of his own. To help in that conquest, DC Entertainment brought the comic book hero to animated life in Emerald Knights a few weeks back, and Cartoon Network will see a Green Lantern Animated Series launch next year. In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night! Take a look at the full box office from this past weekend
