Box Office Numbers: Jack Reacher can't reach (around) top

The Jack Reacher/reach-around joke will never get old. When I die, I hope there's a reach around pun on my tombstone, complete with a silhouette of Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. Unfortunately, Tom Cruise and his reaching around wasn't enough to overtake the box office this weekend as the film took in a measly $15.6m in comparison to the incumbent The Hobbit and its $36.7m. Judd Apatow's This is 40 followed in third place with $12m. I haven't seen it yet, but the idea of a Knocked Up sequel sounded kind of boring to me, but that could be because I wasn't a huge fan of Knocked Up.

The rest of the box office numbers are below.
