Top 10 movies and the weekend box office (07/06/14)Loading
    2. "Tammy," $21.2 million ($2.5 million international).

    New Line's R-rated, Midwest road trip romp "Tammy" boasts one of the most bankable stars in movies — McCarthy — but is a smaller, homespun movie made for just $20 million and directed by McCarthy's husband, Ben Falcone. Despite being savaged by critics, the Warner Bros. release made $32.9 million in five days since opening Wednesday.

  • 1175917 - DELIVER US FROM EVIL
    3. "Deliver Us From Evil," $9.5 million ($2.5 million international).

    The other new wide release was the horror flick "Deliver Us From Evil," which had no blockbuster ambitions. The Sony Screen Gems release, starring Eric Bana, opened in third with $9.5 million.

  • 1178499 - 22 Jump Street
    4. "22 Jump Street," $9.4 million ($10 million international).

    "22 Jump Street" is a monument to mocking, a master class in dissing, a parody of pastiche, poking its R-rated finger at social conventions, sequels, stereotypes, football, frats, friends, drugs, sex - even its stars. "22 Jump Street" dropped to the fourth spot this week, earning $9.4 million.

  • How To Train Your Dragon 2
    5. "How to Train Your Dragon 2," $8.8 million ($33.5 million international).

    From the fashionable day-old scruff on Hiccup's 20-year-old Viking chin to the amped-up firepower of Toothless, "How to Train Your Dragon 2" has made good use of the years since the villagers of Berk and the boy who'd rather not be chief first charmed us.

    6. "Earth to Echo," $8.3 million.

    After a construction project begins in their neighborhood, three boys start to receive strange coded messages on their cellphones, and their investigation brings them into contact with an extraterrestrial who needs their help. "Earth to Echo," Relativity Media's animated release, debuted this week, but only took in $8.3 million.

    7. "Maleficent," $6.1 million ($17.3 million international).

    In re-imagining the infamous evil queen who curses an innocent girl, "Maleficent" is very much a cautionary tale for modern times. It essentially prompts the question - are you sure it was the shrew that needed taming? It stars a wickedly good Angelina Jolie.

  • Film Review-Jersey Boys
    8. "Jersey Boys," $5.1 million ($2.7 million international).

    Director Clint Eastwood brings the successful Broadway musical to the screen in a pleasantly old-fashioned production that gives equal weight to personal drama and the classic rock anthems of the Four Seasons.

  • 1200290 - THINK LIKE A MAN TOO
    9. "Think Like a Man Too," $4.9 million.

    Kevin Hart's amped-up style has earned him shooting-star status, but in "Think Like a Man Too" he hits such adrenaline-fueled extremes it's exhausting. Hart is on day and night as the sprawling group of friends we met in the 2012 adaptation of Steve Harvey's bestselling "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man" heads to Vegas for a wedding - and the requisite debauched bachelor and bachelorette parties beforehand.

    Matt Kennedy
    10. "Edge of Tomorrow," $3.6 million ($8.4 million international).

    With Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt starring in an Earth-versus-aliens epic, this is one mass-market entertainment that's smart, exciting and unexpected while not stinting on genre satisfactions.
