V for Vendetta roared to the top of the box office this weekend, its take of about $26 million out-earning the nearest competition by more than $10 million. While that total - on just under 3400 screens - sounds pretty impressive, it's believed to be below the studio's opening weekend hopes. Meanwhile She's the Man, the week's other debut, met estimates with $11 million, which was enough to make it the fourth-highest earner of the weekend. Finishing second was Failure to Launch which, with a take of $15.8 million, fell 35% from last week's chart-leading totals. In third was The Shaggy Dog with $13.6 million, the audience for which fell only slightly after last week's open - thanks to families with small kids, this one might have some staying power. Wrapping up the top five was The Hills Have Eyes, which took in $8.1 million; the film's $28.8 million total after just two weeks in release is nearly twice its budget.

Full numbers are after the jump.
