'G-Force' Topples 'Harry Potter' at Box Office

Posted: Updated:
An elite squad of guinea pigs has worked its own brand of magic at the box office, taking the No. 1 spot from boy wizard Harry Potter.

The 3-D animated "G-Force" was the top movie at the box office this weekend, opening with $32.2 million.

Last week's No. 1 film, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," came in a close second with an estimated $30 million. That's a whopping 61 percent drop from its huge opening last weekend of $79.5 million.

The sixth installment in the Harry Potter franchise has now made $222 million total.
