Movies News Pop: Melissa McCarthy's Winning Streak Continues at Theaters

Wochit 1:03 mins

The comic actress behind Bridesmaids and Identity Thief struck again, leading The Heat to a strong second-place finish and trouncing Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, stars of the other new release, White House Down. Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz certainly seem friendly in their new movie "The Counselor." Fans got a tantalizing sneak peek from a scene that teases the two stars almost topless by the pool and drinking cocktails in the star-studded Ridley Scott thriller. Roland Emmerich's big-budget tentpole "White House Down", Starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, may only open to a dismal $25 million, likely hurt by hitting theaters so soon after the similarly themed "Olympus Has Fallen." The $150 million film, from Sony, took in around $9 million on Friday to only narrowly beat World War Z ($8.9 million).
