Somehow… Identity Thief dominates the weekend Box Office, opening No. 1 with an estimated $36 million dollars! Wow…



That $36 million grossed by Identity Thief, beats Bridesmaids which opened to $26.2 million. Jason Bateman was right, Melissa McCarthy is a star. Meanwhile, Warm Bodies fell steeply to second place by grossing a weak  $11.7 million dollars. In third, was Side Effects. And despite its star power and fantastic director, it only managed to pull in $9.4 million dollars — though, no one is surprised.
