Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau have buddied up again to land their relationship comedy "Couples Retreat" at the top of the weekend box office. The movie pulled in $35.3 million to take over the No. 1 spot from "Zombieland," the horror comedy that slipped to second place with $15 million.
The micro-budgeted fright flick "Paranormal Activity" did big business in its first full weekend after two weeks of midnight-only screenings. "Paranormal Activity" came in at No. 4 with $7.1 million in just 160 cinemas, a fraction of the theater count for other top releases. The movie was shot for just $15,000.
