Good, clean movies rule the roost … oh, wait!

The weekend’s top-10 movies, courtesy of Media by Numbers:

1. WALL*E — $62.5 million
2. Wanted — $51.1 million
3. Get Smart — $20 million
4. Kung Fu Panda — $11.7 million
5. The Incredible Hulk — $9.2 million
6. The Love Guru — $5.4 million
7. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull — $5 million
8. The Happening — $3.9 million
9. Sex and the City — $3.8 million
10. You Don’t Mess With the Zohan — $3.2 million

As expected, Disney-Pixar’s “WALL*E” was huge, and at this point the animation leader could print its own money.

However, the big surprise was the comic book adaptation “Wanted,” which had one of the top openings for an R-rated film ever. It will be interesting to see how the film does this week, when it faces competition from the PG-13 rated Will Smith vehicle “Hancock,” which opens Wednesday.

Speaking of that film, which upcoming summer movie or movies are you most excited to see?
