CAPTAIN AMERICA SAYS, "FORGET STOPPING NAZIS, I'M BEATING DOWN HARRY POTTER!"

While Captain America's $65 million take might seem a little light in the tights compared to the Holy Crusader Trinity of Batman, Spider-Man, and Iron Man, it's actually a great take for the summer of 2011. It's right on line with Thor's start, which was waves better than X-Men: First Class and Green Lantern, and if it ends up with a similar $180 million total, Marvel will be very, very happy. When they put all their heroes together in the same pot next summer, they're thinking they could double the output to $360 million and that would help carry any sequels to these films to much higher heights.

Besides, if they go forward with a Captain America Broadway musical, they've already got their first song ready to go thanks to Alan Menken's newly penned tune in the movie. That's a better start than Spider-Man had. Maybe they should've had Macy Gray write Turn Off The Dark instead of Bono and The Edge.

Friends with Benefits had enough friends to not actually bomb with a $18.6 million debut. However, it'll need some real friends and not just Facebook "I'm Trying To Get To 1,000 Friends" Friends if it's going to fit in with the "grown-up" hits of Bridesmaids, Bad Teacher, and Horrible Bosses.

Harry Potter could've used some of those friends as the film plummeted 72% in its second weekend. Talk about the Deathly Hallows! Of course, the reality that the film's made $273.5 million in 10 days should sooth some quaking muggles. Still, will it have enough magic to overtake the Dark of the Moon?

The Top Five If Today Was Labor Day:
#1. Transformers 3 - $325.8 million
#2. Harry Potter 7 Part II - $273.5 million
#3. Hangover 2 - $252.5 million
#4. Pirates 4 - $238 million
#5. Thor - $180.1 million
