Kevin James surprised the world by winning the box office for a second straight week with Paul Blart: Mall Cop, fending off a Kate-Beckinsale-less Underworld prequel and Brendan Fraser’s Inkheart, a kid-fantasy film that deserved more attention than it received. Slumdog Millionaire, however, is certainly getting an award boost, and the slew of Oscar nominations brought Benjamin Button back onto the the top ten list as well.

1. Paul Blart: Mall Cop – $21.5m
2. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans – $20.7m
3. Gran Torino – $16m
4. Hotel for Dogs – $12.3m
5. Slumdog Millionaire – $10.5m
6. My Bloody Valentine 3-D – $10m
7. Inkheart – $7.7m
8. Bride Wars – $7m
9. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – $6m
10. Notorious – $5.7m
