Last weekend at the movies was not a huge surprise. Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” took a baseball bat to the heads of the competition and kept swinging until there was nothing left but a bloody stump and a pile of money. Meanwhile, the new instant classic, “District 9″ dropped just under 50% for a second place showing at $18.9 million for the weekend. Rounding out the top five were “G.I. Joe:The Rise of Cobra” at $12.5 million, “The time Traveler’s Wife” at $10 Million and “Julie and Julia” at $9 Million. Look for all those rankings to change next weekend when “The Final Destination” and “Halloween 2″ Hit over 3,000 screens each.

1 Inglourious Basterds $37,602,000
2 District 9 $18,900,000
3 G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra $12,500,000
4 The Time Traveler’s Wife $10,025,000
5 Julie & Julia $9,000,000
6 Shorts $6,600,000
7 G-Force $4,205,000
8 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince $3,515,000
9 The Ugly Truth $2,850,000 -35.9%
10 Post Grad $2,800,000
