All four of last week's newbies landed in the top five, though the previous week's number one film 17 Again had enough staying power to retain second place. Here's the top five:
1. Obsessed: $28.6 million
2. 17 Again: $11.5 million
3. Fighting: $11 million
4. The Soloist: $9.7 million
5. Earth: $8.8 million

Three new releases this week, one of which is a likely candidate for the first Summer Blockbuster of 2009.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
What's It All About:
In this Dickensian romantic comedy Matthew Mconaughey stars as a commitment-phobic womanizer who is visited by the ghosts of the women he has dumped over the years. Jennifer Garner also stars.
Why It Might Do Well: Good counter programming choice as this one will share virtually no audience members with the other new releases.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
Maybe it's the testosterone talking, but the trailer seems kind of dopey.
Number of Theaters:
Prediction: $22 million

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
What's It All About:
In this prequel to the X-Men movies, the adamantium-clawed mutant Wolverine takes center stage and shares the screen with other classic Marvel characters including The Blob, Deadpool and Gambit.
Why It Might Do Well: The three previous X-Men movies had opening weekends of $54 million, $85 million, and $102 million respectively. Will the trend toward mutant fever continue?
Why It Might Not Do Well:
Can Wolverine put asses in seats without the rest of the X-Men backing him up?
Number of Theaters:
$90 million
