Fans flocked to Penguins of Madagascar, which opened at number two with $25.8 million for the weekend.

Interstellar lost its glow, falling to number four with $15.8 million. Its domestic gross of $147 million is still light years behind its $165 million budget.

Horrible Bosses 2 was fired, opening at number five with just $15.7 million. That’s a far cry from its predecessor’s $117 million domestic gross.

Dumb and Dumber To wasn’t too sharp at number six with $8.2 million. You don’t have to be a genius to figure out a third installment isn’t going to happen.
